Review

Legaris Crianza is made mainly from Tinto Fino grapes with a small quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon. Intense methodical work in the vineyards produces an excellent harvest which is carefully collected and taken to the winery to be gently de-stemmed. The grapes are kept in cool conditions for a couple of days to conserve the essence of the fruit and then fermented for two weeks before the wine is then deposited in French and American oak barrels to age for 12 months and gain its unmistakeable character. Once the perfect balance has been reached, the wine is carefully filtered and bottled.

The painstaking work of the winery results in a splendidly intense wine, with a Picota cherry colour and violet rims. In the nose, the Legaris Crianza elegantly combines aromas of ripe dark fruit with spicy and balsamic hints from its time spent ageing in barrels. Vanilla and coconut also dominate among its honest and intense aromas, alongside cherries and blackberries. It's a wide flavoursome and lively wine in the mouth with pleasant tannins and a good volume. It delights the drinker with its harmony, but also with the intensity of its sensations. A lingering wine, it leaves a taste of elegant liqueurs and fine spicy notes. A perfect balance and aromatic complexity mean it pairs well with a wide variety of dishes ranging from tender lamb to semi-mature cheeses, as well as meat stews or pulse-based dishes.

Mallorca 2019

Habe den Wein Legaris 2014 auf Mallorca richtig kennen gelernt und hoffe, dass der 2016er genau so würzig, inhaltsvoll wie der 2014 ist ? Super Preis/Lesitungsverhältnis !

Muy bueno

Tras visitar la bodega y conocer los viñedos en la Ribera de Duero puedo decir que este es un crianza muy rico, fruto de un trabajo muy cuidado de la viña a la copa.

Alternative

zu vielen anderen, preislich deutlich höher positionierten Abfüllungen. Eine unbedingte Empfehlung ! Sehr runder Wein, als Begleiter für dunkles Fleisch wie auch am Kamin.
