  • You will see that the title of this wine is Besanas Crianza.  When you see the name “Crianza” on a Spanish wine bottle, this is an indicator of how the wine crafted.  By Spanish law to put Crianza on a wine label, the wine must be aged for two years with one year of that in oak barrels.  

    The longer the wine is aged in oak barrels, the more you can expect to pay for that wine.  It’s an expensive process.  The cost is why you will see commercial wineries use oak chips and oak extracts as alternatives to try to achieve the same results.  Thes oak alternatives are often found in wines under ten dollars.
