Angeles de Amaren Rioja is a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano made in a small winery owned by Luis Cañas and dedicated to producing small quantities of the best Rioja wines. A fine balance of red and black fruits with subtle oak, fine tannins and a long smooth finish.
Bodegas Amaren, meaning 'of my mother' in Basque pays homage to Angeles, the mother of Juan Luis Cañas, owner of Bodegas Luis Cañas.
Angeles dedicated her life to the winery with a fierce passion to produce only the highest quality wines. In 2009 Juan created a winery dedicated to making wines that represent the pioneering ambition of his mother. Grapes are hand harvested and vineyard plots are categorised according to quality. These wines are so good five of the seven 3-star Michelin restaurants in Spain feature them on their menus.
The Amaren brand began in 1995 and was until recently the premium range from Luis Cañas. Following the immense commercial and critical success of these wines, Juan Luis determined it was time to create a winery devoted exclusively to their creation. At Ama- ren, he seeks perfection at every stage of the process; in the vineyard, during selection, and throughout the processing and ageing. And with nearly 50 percent of the vineyards older than 60 years, as well as a rational and environmentally friendly form of viticulture.
