A varietal Tinta del País, Valdaya El Valiente is produced by the up-and-coming winery Bodegas Valdaya from vineyards situated at 900 metres of altitude, in DO Ribera del Duero.
The vines, 30 to 50 years of age, are planted in clayey soils in Gumiel de Mercado and Baños de Valdearados, two villages in the province of Burgos.
Hand-picked and sorted on site, the grapes were first destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks and concrete diposits. Then this Spanish red wine was transferred into French oak barrels and macerated for some time.
After that, Valdaya El Valiente 2018 was aged in the barrels for 12 months before its bottling.
Aerate this red wine from Ribera del Duero 30 minutes before drinking.

The red wine Valdaya El Valiente is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tinta del País (or Tempranillo) conveys a transparent varietal character, with aromas of mulberries and blackcurrants, hints of flowers and balsam and subtle spicy and toasted notes.
This wine from Bodegas Valdaya is fruit-forward and inviting, with great freshness, well-rounded tannins and a steely acidity. Long finish carrying notes of forest floor, wild berries and a smokey note.
