Crianza Wines are wines that after being made aimed at improving their qualities through aging. The aging of the wine takes place in two phases: a first barrel aging, is called oxidative aging, in which small amounts of oxygen penetrating into the wooden bowl usually oak, which gives the wine its own aromatic characteristics , to be gradually fusing with the tannins, naturally modifying the chemical structure of the components of the wine. And one second bottle aging, without significant temperature changes, with a relative humidity above 70%, in the absence of oxygen, as it can only enter the bottle small amounts, which is filtered through cork cells , which causes the reaction of the elements came together.

 

Law 24/2003 of July 10 of Vine and Wine defines a "breeding in the case of red wines with a minimum aging period of 24 months which have remained at least 6 in oak barrels maximum capacity of 330 liters. and in the case of white and rosé, a minimum aging period of 18 months, of which at least 6 in oak ". There are regulatory boards of designations of origin which are more demanding, such as Rioja or Ribera del Duero in red increases the minimum time of aging in barrels for 12 months and the barrels must have a capacity of approximately 225 liters. The rest of the time is not specified if the wine has to be bottled or tank, either wood, steel or cement before being labeled and go to market as early in their third year of life.

 

The wine evolves over time, and aging in barrel and bottle is getting more balanced and their characteristics are improved. Unlike young wines are rich in tannins wines, which will soften and gradually aging by interaction with oak barrels and then bottled. They are characterized by acquiring more complex aromas and flavors thanks to the oak. Wines Crianza are ideal to be consumed years after its development and go to market in the second year. It is recommended to serve between 17°C and 19°C.
