RIOJA VEGA CRIANZA LIMITED EDITION 2015
Time becomes value. The origins of this wine cellar, prior even to the time when the Denominación de Origen guarantee of quality was created, have enabled it to preserve the word Rioja in its trademark. Rioja Vega is today one of the few wine cellars whose winemaking tradition dates back to the dawn of wine culture in this outstanding region. Those were the years when the French maestros, fleeing from the phylloxera that ravaged the vineyards in their country, chose these lands.They knew that proximity to the Ebro, its poor soils and its fine climate would produce an exceptional wine.
During those years, Felipe Ugalde, who later joined forces with the Muerza family, was able to take full advantage of the knowledge of these pioneers and later, pass it on to his heirs. More than 125 years have gone by since then and, by continuing with the same attitude, they have steadily gained wisdom, experience and knowledge by adapting to technological advances and carrying out research in order to be able to offer the wide range of wines they have today.
This wine has a very intense and attractive ruby red colour with bright purples reflexes in the glass, on the nose there is an aroma of toast with hints of eucalyptus over a bed of black fruits. On the palate this wine is both sweet and balanced with hints od candied fruits and a very good tannic structure. Long aftertaste and a warm velvety finale.

The Wine Advocate
"Cropped from an early harvest, the 2015 Edición Limitada is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Graciano fermented with selected yeasts and aged in American oak barrels for 14 months. It's fresh and balanced, with focused, clean aromas and integrated oak. The palate is harmonious, with fine-grained tannins and a serious profile. 61,735 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2017"
