Made solely from Tempranillo, this red wine from La Rioja is produced from young vines planted in sandy-limestone soils covered with pebble stones on a bend of the Duero river, at 400 metres of altitude.
Harvested in late September, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. After that, Cantos de Valpiedra 2018 was aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels.
Finally, this Vino de Pago was aged for some months in the bottle before its release onto the market.
The wine Cantos de Valpiedra is medium purple with a violet rim.
This varietal Tempranillo suggests some notes of rose pepper, tobacco, cocoa, liquor-infused fruit and liquorice, combined with aromas of raspberries, blackcurrants and some mineral hints.
Fresh and balanced, this wine from Finca Valpiedra has a very good acidity and some ripe tannins. Finish is medium-long, reminiscent of blackberries, spices and vanilla.
