Awards and/or Press Quotes
Penin Guide 93 Points
Robert Parker 90 Points. ‘The Ares Crianza 2011 is an aromatic wine, floral with notes of violet, liquorice and ripe cherry. The palate is smooth with crisp flavours, integrated wood and some smokey notes, good acidity and a very pleasant finish dominated by aromas of violets. Superb!’
