The plants grow in an extremely tough environment. The soils, which are very poor, are composed of clay, limestone and sand. Climate is continental. In summer, temperatures can go up to 40ºC. In winter, they can reach -15ºC.
Harvested by hand at the beginning of October, the grapes of this Spanish red wine were fermented, macerated and then aged for a period of 15 months in American and French oak barrels.
After that, Valduero Crianza 2016 was aged for a further 12 months in the cellar before its commercial release.
Aerate this red wine from Ribera del Duero some time before drinking.
The wine Valduero Crianza has an intense garnet colour with a violet rim.
This varietal Tinto Fina from Ribera del Duero is lively and well defined. Notes of black fruit, balsam and spices, punctuated by some mineral undertones and notes of withered leaves, tree bark, cumin and Jamaican pepper. A deep wine by Bodegas Valduero.
Bold but not brisk, this Crianza red wine by the Valduero winery has a medium body and a savoury, meaty texture sustained by a fat-free, solid structure. Juicy notes of red and black fruit and a rich panoply of spicy and balsamic sensations. This Ribera del Duero red wine has some ripe, sweet tannins and well-balanced acidity. Long, complex finish.
