Product Description

Tasting notes: Glorioso Crianza

Glorioso Crianza. Deep cherry red colour, clean and very intense. A clearly defined nose of the fruity notes of the Tempranillo grape combined perfectly with the fine aromas added by ageing in French oak. A very expressive wine, in which the ripeness of the fruit brings freshness and liveliness to the whole. A long, silky finish with a velvety mouthfeel.

Food match: 

Ideal with grilled red or white meats, oily fish such as swordfish and mature cheeses.

Producer/Region :

Bodegas Palacio is one of the oldest wineries in the region. It forms part of the select group of centenary wineries of the Rioja D.O.Ca. Glorioso, registered in 1917. It is one of the winery’s longest established and most prestigious wine brands.

Bodegas Palacio, which is based in Laguardia in the heart of Rioja Alavesa, was founded in 1894 by Don Cosme Palacio. It forms part of the Entrecanales Domecq e Hijos. The winery owns 200 hectares of vineyards and focuses on classic Rioja styles made from 100% Tempranillo, as well as traditional white wines made predominantly from Viura. The cooler climate and generous rainfall in Rioja Alavesa gives the wines their trademark freshness and elegance.

Viticulture/Vinification: Glorioso Crianza

Selected grapes from vineyards in the Rioja Alavesa. Rioja Alavesa is a very special area for the production of unique and high-quality wines with the microclimate of the region protecting the vines from both cold and wetwinds from the North and the intense heat of the South. The vines are grown on calcareous clay terraces at altitude, allowing the grapes to mature slowly and gradually, preserving their characteristic aromas and creating expressive and complex wines.

Vatting of destemmed grapes. Cold maceration prior to fermentation. Long temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. At least 12 months in medium toast French oak barrels. Time spent in bottle: At least 12 months in bottle before release.
