2008 Hacienda Lopez De Haro Crianza Rioja

WINERY: "Bodega Classica's building is located on a bucolic hill in the historic village of San Vicente de la Sonsierra (one of the villages with the longest wine-producing tradition) and rises above a sea of vineyards irrigated by the River Ebro. The Riojan Sonsierra is an area located on the south side of the Cantabrian Mountain Range and the Tolono mountains, which protects it from the cold winds and humidity from the Cantabrian Sea. Its climate conditions, with more rainfall during the winter than any period of the year and the wind coming through the Valley of Ebro, make it a perfect area to grow vines. Its uneven orography and calcareous clay soils with good drainage is perfect for the Tempranillo variety. Bodega Classica brings together the grape's excellent conditions and the essence of Rioja winegrowing tradition to create a wide range of elegant, expressive and aromatic wines." -Importer [+]
