Azpilicueta Crianza 2012 can be matched with jamon iberico and semi-cured cheese. 4 points on 5 is the average score of Azpilicueta Crianza 2012 on Uvinum. The awesomeness of its architecture and the efficiency of its modern making process locate the Azpilicueta cellar at the forefront of wine making and new wine culture.
