- Brand name: 12 LUNAS
- Sector: VINO TINTO CON D.O. CRIANZA
This wines displays a very strong cherry-red hue flecked with purple. It is fresh and intense on the nose with notes of ripe red fruit, and smooth and big on the palate thanks to its round, velvety tannins. The palate is soft and fresh, giving way to a long finish where the red fruit blends with the toasted notes created by the nine-months’ ageing in French oak barrels.

El Grillo y La Luna (‘The Cricket and The Moon’) is a family business which was born in Barbastro in 2007 with the aim of creating wines with soul and a unique character.“Patience” is the byword at this winery, we wait for the optimum ripeness of each grape variety in each plot.
At El Grillo y La Luna, good things come to those who wait. Because we believe that good wine starts in the vineyards, our wines are produced in an unhurried fashion, respecting the uniqueness of each vintage as much as possible, and are only released for sale when they are ready.It is undoubtedly their ageing that sets the wines from this Somontano winery apart. With 48 hectares of vines, this is one of the smallest wineries in this D.O in the Aragon region. Here the entire crop is harvested and selected by hand. The date of the harvest is not laid down by regulations, but determined by going out into the vineyards and tasting the grapes.
Thus, with love, serenity and determination, we obtain wines with body, freshness and balance, exceptional wines in which the terroir and grape variety achieve their finest expression
