It presents an intense ruby red colour with brick-coloured inflections. Its nose contains subtle aromas of vanilla and quince. Smooth, silky and agreeably persistent on the palate.
At the beginning of the 1990s, the winemaking team at Bodegas AGE decided to develop a new range of wines which would mark the future trajectory of the winery while drawing on the style of old crianza and reserva wines from that region; wines that would respect traditional varieties (Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo), blended according to classic criteria but decidedly up-to-date in their expression. With Elena Adella as the leading technician, and with the new winery as the flagship of an avant-garde, sustainable and distinctive approach to making wine, Azpilicueta has become a reference producer of Rioja wines which has a robust future ahead of it and is recognised and enjoyed by consumers around the world.
