I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

2003 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Crianza

  • 2003 Bodegas Luberri Rioja Crianza – Spain, La Rioja, Rioja (5/16/2006)
    Deep reddish purple in color. The nose shows pure fresh raspberry with lighth cinnamon spice. Fun nose and hard to get my nose out of the glass. Maeium acidty and tannin give way to a light sweetness, and short finish. Delicate wine that seems to be lacking a bit of body. Nice enough though.
    3 grape

      The thing is with a Luberri crianza, its a very young wine (which explains the lacking of body) and usually has to be consumed within the year after it has been released in the bottle, really beautiful and a subtle wine. Interesting method of production too.
