Product Description

Produced by Pago de Vallegarcía, the composition of Petit Hipperia slightly changes with each vintage.

Besides, each bottling of this Spanish red wine comes with a slightly different label, with a horse-the emblem of the winery-as a recurrent motif.

The 2020 vintage is made from 34% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Franc, 24% Merlot, 1% of Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot, coming from vineyards situated in the Cabañeros National Park, at 850 metres of altitude, in the Toledo mountain range.

After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were macerated for 3-4 days and separately vinified in stainless steel tanks with periodic punch-overs and pump-downs.

Subsequently, Petit Hipperia 2020 completed malolactic fermentation in oak barrels.

Finally, this Crianza red wine from designation VT Castilla was aged for 12 months in the barrels.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The wine Petit Hipperia is medium ruby with a garnet rim and some violet tinges.


This interesting blend of  Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot exhibits some intense aromas of fruit, balsam and toast, underpinned by suggestions of terroir, undergrowth and liquorice.


Pleasant and mild, with a fresh acidity and some savoury tannins. Black fruit is the dominant note of this wine of Pago Vallegarcía with a dash of spices and balsam and some toasted and earthy remembrances. This red wine from Castilla has a long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

The impeccably crafted Petit Hipperia 2020 is an excellent value from Toledo.
