Altos Ibéricos was Familia Torres first endeavor in the Rioja region. This light, elegant and modern interpretation presents the essence of Tempranillo in all its beauty. The Crianza offers a bright and contemporary red with smooth juicy tannin, elevated aromas and full-bodied fruit. Light aging in French and American oak creates a well rounded palate and savory undertones of clove, green peppercorn and toasted bread. In 2016, good climate conditions contributed to very healthy vines, but the lack of rainfall from May, combined with high summer temperatures, slowed down fruit maturation. However, rainfall in late August gave the vineyard some respite and allowed for satisfactory grape maturity, and the 2016 harvest took place on the usual dates.
