Rioja Crianza,
Viñedos Real Rubio, 2016
...

This Crianza is the mainstay of the Viñedos Real Rubio range and is a blend of the most common Tempranillo grape balanced with the fortitude and focus of the Graciano grape. Great on its own or perfect with red meat, stews, charcuterie, smoked cheese and even punchy swordfish. This Rioja Crianza has mellow flavours of vanilla and red berries, backed up by well-structured tannins on the palate with a long decay.
