Valenciso Reserva Rioja

Tax included.

Harvested in October - the winery follow sustainable viticulture and are moving towards organic practice. Aged for 17 months in French oak barrels, less than 3 years old; one third of which are renewed annually.

Valenciso wines are beautifully understated and elegant. The Valenciso Reserva Rioja is well-made and far from ostentatious, they blend the best of tradition with fine modern practice. Pungent meaty and curranty aromas, and hints of cedar and spice. Produced purely from Tempranillo, and aged in new French and American oak barriques, this wine shows all the elegance of the variety, soft-bodied and smooth. Delicate and velvety, with plenty of complexity, and a strong core. The Valenciso Reserva is great with red meats, strong cheeses, game pie.

Valenciso Rioja Reserva: ” ‘Mascarpone cherries, raspberries, plums and sage. Sweet spices and coconut.’ Matthew Wakeford; ‘Meaty, earthy roasted cocoa beans, but generous red and black fruit. This would be great with steak.’ Robert Mason; ‘Ripe fruit profile – plums and strawberry compote with fresh mint, nutmeg and baking spices.’ Beatrice Bessi.” 91pts.
