La Emperatriz
Finca la Emperatriz has an extraordinary location in the Rioja sub-zone of Rioja Alta. Right at the edge of the legal limits for where Rioja can be made, they are also on one of the highest plateaus in the whole region. This allows for super-ripe fruit to grow during the days on account of full sun exposure, as well as for cold nights to thicken the skins. The wines then are, unsurprisingly, excellent. This crianza is full and dark, with lovely flavours of berries, spice and strawberry pureé.
