Bodegas Urbina 2011 Tinto Crianza, Rioja
Although light in colour, Pedro Urbina has packed sweet, figgy fruit as well as vanilla oak and a long finish into this well crafted wine. This never fails to please, a first class Rioja!
Bodegas Benito Urbina, a family-owned, single estate winery, has 75 hectares of vineyards, 65 of Tempranillo, and 10 of Graciano, Mazuelo and Viura. Four generations of the family have dedicated themselves to the cultivation of their vineyards and the production of wine. In 1975 the bodega began to age and bottle their own wine in order to retain the special characteristics of a small single estate. Their sole objective, the production of quality wines, has been achieved as the result of careful viticulture using traditional techniques, harvesting by hand and avoiding the use of weed killers and pesticides.
