SIGLO Rioja Crianza Selección
SIGLO Rioja Crianza Selección. One of the things that defines Bodegas Manzanos is the large area of vineyards that they own in different parts of Rioja. This is why they, more than anyone else, can elaborate “the Rioja wine”.
The Rioja wine region is located in northern Spain, on both sides of the Ebro River.
The local terrain perfectly delimits the region and sets it apart from surrounding territories.
Rioja is a privileged region for growing grapes and making top-quality wines, with a unique personality and an exceptional aptitude for ageing.
The Rioja valley has a maximum width of about 40 kilometres, covered in vineyards which occupy successive terraces to an altitude of about 700 metres above sea level.
The wine region has many different soils -chalky-clay, ferrous-clay and alluvial being the main ones- and microclimates -depending on vineyard orientation, protection against wind, etc.- that provide the wines with unique traits.
The use of different grape varieties and growing practices, allows our winemakers to make a wide range of wines with a different personality, although always within the framework of a perfectly-recognizable common identity.
