Tempranillo - Rioja - Crianza - Hazana - Bodegas Vincola Real - Spain
The Hazañas of old were the illustrious deeds and exploits of Spain´s literary heroes, such as Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, whose many hazañas against the Moorish infidels inspired the poem: Cantar del mio Cid. The philosophy of the Hazaña brand is to embrace modern tendencies insofar as the importance of fruit and concentration is concerned, without losing the hallmark personality of Rioja. As such, all the wines display fantastic deep colour, superb berry fruit, and controlled toast and vanilla character.
Vineyards located at Albelda de Inesua - 542 m above sea level, 13 kms from the capital of Rioja, Logroño. Rioja Alta.
Made from 100% Tempranillo grapes the wine was aged for 12 months in new French and American casks and a further 12 months cellaring in the bottle.
With hints of spice and vanilla on the nose with underlying ripe red fruits and nuances of eucalyptus. On the palate it is soft and smooth with pure fruit flavours and good structure. The finish is long and expressive. Drink over the next 4 years.
