Lealtanza 2011 Rioja Crianza

Intense, deep ruby red with garnet highlights. Sweet red fruit (strawberry, cherry) and liquorice aromas blend harmonically with the smoky, “grilled bread”, balsamic notes characteristic of good French oak; there is just a hint of earthy, mineral back notes. Its entry is fresh and it maintains that freshness on the palate along its tasting. It is round, with a very long aftertaste and clear memory of black fruits such as blackberries and blackcurrant that remind in the aftertaste. It allows a wide variety of meat dishes such as stews, lamb, game and generally meats with strong flavours.
