Product Description
Details

The prestigious Bodegas Valduero produces Valduero 2 Cotas Reserva from vineyards situated at 840 and 900 metres above sea level, the two highest areas in DO Ribera del Duero. The soils are made from clay and limestone, punctuated by areas of sand. Climate is continental.

Made solely from Tinto Fino grapes, this Spanish red wine was sourced from over 50-year old, low-yielding vines.

Harvested by hand and selected on site, the grapes were fermented and macerated under controlled temperature for 8 days.

Then this reserva red wine was macerated for 10 days with daily pump-overs. The wine was subsequently transferred into oak barrels of three different origins (French, American and Central European.)

After that, Valduero 2 Cotas Reserva 2014 was aged for 30 months in the barrels and for a further 18 months in the bottle.

Slowly approaching its peak, but not quite there yet, this red wine from Ribera del Duero should be decanted 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Valduero 2 Cotas Reserva is deep ruby with a purple rim.

Nose

This varietal Tinto Fino carries seductive aromas of fine wood, toast, coffee, cocoa and leather, evolving into withered leaves, pine needles, dry earth and blackcurrants. A complex, ever-evolving nose.

Palate

With a bold entrance onto the palate, this wine of Bodegas Valduero has a solid structure, powdery tannins and a very good acidity. Terroir-oriented and complex, with suggestions of dry earth, blackcurrants, lavender, black truffles, tree bark, coffee, cocoa powder and spices. Long, slightly bitter finish.

Our personal opinion

The deep and richly layered Valduero 2 Cotas Reserva 2014 will pair wonderfully with stews, game dishes and cured cheeses.

Impetuous, dark and compact. Tobacco leaves, blueberries, cocoa, leather, scents - do you remember that June evening at La Mammounia? - and earth. Fa-bu-lous!!
