Wine produced mostly with the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) variety combined with a small contribution from Cabernet Sauvignon. Notably deep cherry red in color with a violet rim. Predominant among its frank, intense aromas are hints of vanilla and coconut thanks to its aging in oak. Full of flavor, lively, well-structured and long with intense aromas in the mouth.

The total aging time in barrels of Legaris Crianza has been 12 months and this has been done in different barrels, half of French oak and half of American oak, with 25% new barrel. The special characteristic of Legaris red wine comes from the vineyard and its modern viticulture techniques that help the excellent care of the grape avoiding unnecessary treatments.

Tasting Notes

Very intense picota cherry red with violet hues. Aromas of ripe black fruit on the nose plus milky notes well blended with the toasty and spiced nuances from aging in barrels. A broad, warm mouthfeel with a long finish and good cellaring potential. Recommended pairings: Castile piglet, stews, meat casseroles and semi-cured cheeses.

Ribera del Duero, Spain DO

Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is a Spanish Denominación de Origen Protegida (DOP) located in the country's northern plateau and is one of eleven 'quality wine' regions within the autonomous community of Castile and León. It is also one of several recognized wine-producing regions to be found along the course of the Duero river.

The region is characterized by a largely flat, rocky terrain and is centered on the town of Aranda de Duero, although the most famous vineyards surround Peñafiel and Roa de Duero to the west, where the regional regulatory council or Consejo Regulador for the denominación is based.

Ribera del Duero was named Wine Region of the Year 2012 by the prestigious Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
