PRESS

Príncipe de Viana Edición Limitada (2012) - "This "Super-Spanish" red is more than likely what the Italians were striving for when they thought of blending Sangiovese with other French varieties. Opaque in the glass, this red opens up with notes of cedar, nutmeg, ripe strawberries, lavender, and hints of eucalyptus. The palate may not be the most intense but the integration of flavors, textures, acidity, and tannins is something few wines are capable of achieving. The cooking spices are mixed seamlessly with dried cranberries and plums. There are also hints of Maduro tobacco leaves, cloves, and Kalamata olives. Savory, with a dry finish indicating food, is more than required. "

BODEGAS PRíNCIPE DE VIANA WINERY INFO

Overview: 1200 acres of old vines are managed under contract throughout the region. In 2003, over one thousand additional acres of estate vineyards were established on a rolling chalky-stony plateau at the confluence of the Aragón and Ebro Rivers. Primary grape varieties, sustainably grown, are Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Graciano and Garnacha. Soils are mainly chalky clay and alluvial deposit, the climate an intermittent interplay of Atlantic, Mediterranean and Continental. Persistent "Cierzo" winds responsible for the adjacent Bardenas Desert Natural Park effectively minimize plant disease.

History: Bodegas Príncipe de Viana was created in 1983 as a banner project of Caja Rural de Navarra, an agricultural lending institution founded to provide financial assistance for the sustainable development of Navarra's important farming sector. Reflecting wine's nobility among agricultural products, the project takes its name from an historic Navarran title of Spanish royal succession dating to 1423.
