Obalo Crianza 2012 has just been launched to the market in a new Burgundy-type bottle, which enhances even more the elegance and sophistication of its new design. The wine, which is Bodegas Obalo’s flagship, has an excellent fruitiness perfectly accompanied by a barrel-ageing period that enhances its qualities and marked Rioja character. It is an expressive wine that represents the original Rioja essence.
The 2012 vintage was a vintage exposed to high temperatures, which provided a wine with an aromatic explosion of red fruit over a balsamic bottom note, making it a very attractive wine on the nose. It has a strong attack on the palate; it is warm with a light-medium mid-palate and a pleasant spicy aftertaste of wood and red fruit.
Bodegas Obalo was born in the heart of the Cantabrian Mountain Range, located in a unique area which breathes the Rioja wine tradition. It is precisely in this location where exactly 10 years ago it laid the foundation of a project that has consolidated a line of fresh and fruity wines with a marked Rioja character. These wines express the peculiarity of each of the vintages with well-combined wood nuances that provide and will provide it with a personality for the many years that some of these wines will endure.
