In 1972 Alejandro Fernández started making wine in his home town of Pesquera on the banks of the Duero a few miles east of Valladolid. At that stage he may not have been aware of it, but he was playing a big part in bringing the wines of this region, Ribera del Duero, to the notice of the world. The estate was famously compared to Petrus by the 'one and only' Robert Parker and considered one of the greatest estates in the world. Today the granddaughters of Esperanza and Alejandro took over the reins and with the third generation of Familia Fernández Rivera now at the helm of the company they continue to adapt and expand.

The Crianza is 100% Tempranillo coming from estate vineyards in Lucia, Vina Alto and Llano Santiago sitting at circa 800m above sea level on vines that are somewhere between 30 and 40 years of age. 

Tasting Note:
On the nose the aromas are of blackberries and plums with spicy hints and a touch of vanilla creaminess while the palate shows delicious ripe raspberry and cherry fruit flavours. There's plenty of power here which, coupled with the rounded tannins, give it a nicely sleek and silky feel in the lead up to a subtly spicy finish.

This is a Dry, Full bodied wine with Medium+ acidity and Medium+ tannin. It is Pronounced in it's intensity with High alcohol and a Medium finish.
