Product Description
Details

The wine Cantos de Valpiedra is a single varietal Spanish red wine from La Rioja.

It is the entry-level wine of Finca Valpiedra, a winery started by the Martínez Bujanda family in 1994. The company belongs to the exclusive "Grandes Pagos de España" association ("Spain's Great Estates").

Made solely from Tempranillo, this red wine from La Rioja is produced from young vines planted in sandy-limestone soils covered with pebble stones and located at altitudes around 400 metres at a bend of the Duero river.

Harvested in late September, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and macerated for 19 days. Finally, Cantos de Valpiedra 2016 was aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.

Bottled in July 2018, this vino de Pago was aged a further months in the bottle before its release onto the market.

Appearance

The wine Cantos de Valpiedra has a very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This wine belonging to Grandes Pagos de España suggests some notes of rose pepper, tobacco, cocoa, liquor-infused fruit and liquorice, combined with aromas of raspberries, blackcurrants and some mineral hints. A nicely varietal Tempranillo from La Rioja.

Palate

Fresh and pleasant, showing a great balance and very pure notions of red and black fruit. Acidity is outstanding, and tannins are ripe and mild. This wine by Finca Valpiedra has a long, fresh, spicy finish.
