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.

The grapes used to produce Amaren come from vines situated in the highest parts of the vineyards where the soil is poor, thus obtaining small bunches of grapes which allow for perfect ripening with highly concentrated nuances. Bodegas Amaren owns 22 hectares of more than 60 year old vines, and a further 30 hectares of vines aged between 30 and 60 years old, with low yields and are situated in some of the best plots in Rioja. The grapes used for Amaren Crianza are processed and aged separately to preserve the fruit of the Tempranillo and enhance the complexity of the Graciano. Upon entering the bodega and passing the selection table, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed before undergoing fermentation and then maceration in stainless steel tanks for a total of 8 days, obtaining better colour extraction as well as much more complex wines, suitable for prolonged aging. The wine is clarified and finished with anicrobic filltration. Oak Treatment Time: 12 Months Type: New American, second and third year French % wine oaked: 100 % new oak: 50
