View on San Millan Rioja Crianza wine:
We are facing a wine whose image has been rejuvenated in this 2016.
His new image that shares a reserve Rioja and with a bank of oak duero, is more attractive and it highlights a little angel that is part of its slogan: "The wine harvested in heaven to be enjoyed on earth".
In our opinion it is a little wine body and with less character than we like.
With a market "target" located at young people start drinking wine, rioja seems destined to tapas without pretensions.
His upbringing although 12-month bill does not leave enough wine and the result is a very easy right wine to drink, half although pleasant to chat persistence.
In a word "right" would be the more accurate definition.
Its price is between 5 and 6 euros and give it a quality adjusted price.

If you must try ... although in that price range there is great dispute and perhaps we decantaríamos us for some other brand.
