2014 Alegro Crianza Rioja

This attractive red wine, ideal for sharing, tastes just as a Rioja Crianza should. A blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha, it expresses flavors of red cherry, citrus peel and light leather, with good tension, well-integrated tannins, and a warm, lingering finish. A year spent in American oak barrels adds some complex notes of vanilla and cocoa. Enjoy this balanced and polished Spanish red with paella, leg of lamb or roast pork.
