in the heart of the D.O. Ribera del Duero,
Abadía de Acón
has been making wines using traditional methods
for decades. The Crianza
Tempranillo is their flagship wine aged for 14
months in new oak barrels: French (40%), American
(30%) and Central European (30%).
Deep, dark cherry-red color with a garnet rim.
Powerful, ripe black fruit aromas with hints of
spice, vanilla and licorice. Round in the mouth,
with good fruit flavors and plenty of backbone
from the robust tannins on the lingering finish.
This delicious Spanish red would be the ideal
accompaniment for the “Lamb Shanks Osso Buco” from
by Jennifer Cookbook.
