Overview

The concept of a Semi-Crianza reflects out desire to offer a less predictable wine that falls outside the boundaries of the regular ageing system in La Rioja. This wine sustains the predominant freshness of its fruit, but its brief period in the barrel gives it structure as well as spicy and toasted aromas.

Expert Reviews

The nose of the 2012 Zinio Tempranillo Graciano is really perfumed, with notes of violets and wild berries, juicy and fresh, with a fine thread, grainy tannins and enough acidity. It seems to need food. The blend contains around 15% Graciano. Very good. 180,000 bottles produced. Luis Gutierrez, eRobertParker.com #218 April 2015, Rating 89
