Review about the wine Pagos de Quintana Crianza 2012. Ribera del Duero:

Fans as we are to the Ribera del Duero area, we could not miss this Pagos de Quintana Crianza that appeared in our restaurant of confidence.
Accompanying our weekly tasting to try new wines, we prepared to give a good account of this bottle of Payments of Quintana Crianza 2012, and the result and our impressions now we tell them.
This is a classic wine from the Ribera del Duero, made with tempranillo 100%.
In sight it is a wine cherry intense color, in the nose you can see aromas to roasted fruit of its aging in oak and red fruits that could not define.
In the mouth we have been rather loose, lacking in body to be a breeding with many months in barrel (14 months).
We expected something more in terms of taste, more persistence, more intensity.
We maridamos a few servings of grilled meats and served correctly, although only correctly, with a price ranging from 12 to 16 euros per bottle, we are already in a mid-range that should show more body, more character, balance and power.
Its value for money is therefore simply correct.
