Tasting Notes

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.

Producer details

Valenciso, created in 1998, is a collaboration between ex Bodegas Palacios’ Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. Guided by quality and integrity and a crystal clear vision, they seek to make classically structured, subtle and elegantly fine wines, 100% Tempranillo from low yielding old vines in the Rioja Alta. Winemaker Alicia Eyaralar uses exclusively French barriques, a third being new each year, to produce around 100,000 bottles each vintage. A new bodega in Ollauri was completed just in time for the 2006 vintage.

In the vineyard

Harvested in October; yields are 5.200 kilos per hectare.
