100% Tempranillo aged 17 months in fine grained French oak. Highly polished, tightly wound and elegant wine with refined aromatics. Fine tannins provide a silky texture, leading to a persistent finish of red berries and sweet oak. Blossoms both in body and flavor with decantation and will age gracefully for years, in the manner of top Burgundy.
James Suckling 92 pts -"A firm and silky wine with sweet berry and hints of cedar. Tight and focused with linear backbone and long finish. Very fine."
About The Winery
Valenciso is one of Rioja’s rising stars, a newcomer to the Rioja stable that has quickly risen to join the highest ranks of wines being produced in the region today. Despite being officially founded in 1998, this exciting project has benefited from the unrivalled expertise of Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso, who worked for a top Rioja estate for over 15 years. From their base in Ollauri, they produce small quantities of exceptional (and fantastic value) reserva wines. The quality and finesse of the wines betray the property’s recent origins.
