Bodegas Amaren Crianza is classic Rioja with a lovely ruby red colour and aromas of plum and oak. It's a smooth and fruity wine with a hint of spice and toasted, vanilla oak in the background. Complex, structured and warming, just as a Rioja should be.
Bodegas Amaren, meaning 'of my mother' in Basque pays homage to Ángeles, the mother of Juan Luis Cañas, owner of Bodegas Luis Cañas.
Ángeles dedicated her life to the winery with a fierce passion to produce only the highest quality wines. In 2009 Juan created a winery dedicated to making wines that represent the pioneering ambition of his mother. Grapes are hand harvested and vineyard plots are categorised according to quality. These wines are so good five of the seven 3-star Michelin restaurants in Spain feature them on their menus.
