Professional Wine Reviews for Bodegas Ugarte Rioja Crianza 2016

Rated 90 by James Suckling
A little lifted on the nose with red plums and blackberries, framed in cedary-oak and wet-stone notes. The palate has a bold, rich feel with assertive dark plums on offer. Drink now.
Rated 89 by Wine Enthusiast
Lightly spiced plum and berry aromas are touched up by a dash of oak-driven cinnamon. While this crianza is a bit edgy and gravelly in feel, it deals solid dark-fruit flavors backed by spicy oak. A steady finish carries this blend of 90% Tempranillo and 10% Garnacha home.

Winery Bodegas Ugarte

Region: La Rioja

La Rioja is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown of Spain's wine regions, and the deliciously drinkable, complex and fascinating single red wines and blended wines of this special region have gone down in history as some of the finest on earth. La Rioja is located in the north of Spain, close to the Atlantic coast, but shielded from the cold and wet weather by the expansive Cantabrian mountains. As such, the climatic conditions in La Rioja are ideal for ripening the Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes used in the production of the fine red wines the region is famous for. Wineries in La Rioja take great pride in their heritage and traditions, and the winemakers of the region employ a range of time honored techniques alongside more modern methods to make the most of their superb crops each year.

Country: Spain

Spanish wines are renowned world-wide for carrying all the passion and character of the Spanish culture within them. Any lover of Spanish wine would undoubtedly be able to confirm this notion, as the variety and range of flavors and aromas coming from the high end of Spanish produce is truly impressive, and continues to delight and fascinate both newcomers and the more experienced. Spain benefits massively from an ideal climate for wine production and vine cultivation, with its long, scorching hot summers and far reaching oceanic breezes working perfectly with the native and imported grape varietals, which thrive on the mineral rich soils that cover much of the country. With centuries of knowledge, and generations of expertise under their belts, Spanish wineries continue to focus on raising the quality of their nation's wines, helped along the way by relatively new laws and regulations regarding regional excellence and representativeness.
