Hacienda el Ternero Crianza `Torno`Rioja Alta
The name `Torno` stems from the old Monastery; the monks would place food and clothing onto the base of a rotating door which they would turn `torno` so that the people outside could get to them without looking out. 100 % Tempranillo, this fantastic Crianza was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels before resting in bottle. The nose is perfumed with violets and cherries. The palate is fresh and structured with notes of black fruits with spices and hints of caramel from the oak influence on the finish.
