Red Wine Valduero Una Cepa 2016
Availability: In stock
This exquisite Spanish red wine comes from an organically farmed estate that possesses quite special characteristics. So much so, that several years ago the winemakers decided to produced a wine solely from its grapes.
Harvested by hand, the fruit was brought to the cellar in little boxes and vinified in stainless steel tanks. After that, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was aged in French and American oak barrels for 18 months.
Finally, this Crianza red wine from the DO Ribera del Duero was aged for a further 12 months in the bottle.
Decant Valduero Una Cepa 2016 1 hour before drinking.
Great ageing potential.
The red wine Valduero Una Cepa has a clean, bright cherry colour with a garnet rim.
This varietal Tinto Fino from Ribera del Duero shows a remarkable personality. Creamy notes of cocoa, vanilla and roasted coffee that slowly evolve into aromas of liquorice, black fruit, underbush, black truffles, tobacco leaves and dry earth.
This Crianza red wine by Bodegas Valduero is bold and powerful, with a velvety body enlivened by a tense acidity. Ripe black fruit, some toasted remembrances and some superb mineral and earthy undertones that confirm the presence of an exceptional terroir. The Tempranillo red wine Una Cepa is complex and well-balanced, with plenty of room for growth, and a long, balsamic and slightly mineral finish.
