Product Description
Details

A single varietal Tempranillo, Valenciso Reserva is produced by the Valenciso winery.

This Spanish red wine has gained a considerable recognition over the last years. So much so, that its classy blue label decorated with a silver leaf has already become a quality trademark.

It is made from low-yielding vines located in Rioja Alta, farmed following sustainable agricultural practices and environmentally friendly procedures.

After that, this Reserva red wine was transferred into mainly French, and also Caucasian oak barrels, where it was aged for 18 months. After that, it was aged for a further 14 months in concrete vats.

Decant Valenciso Reserva 2014 from La Rioja a minimum of 30 minutes before drinking.

The 2013 vintage, incidentally, was not released because it did not match the quality standards required by the winery.

Appearance

The red wine Valenciso Reserva has an intense, high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Complex, expressive and very pure, this wine by Bodegas Valenciso is reminiscent of liquorice, spices and blackberry jam, with some nuances of balsam, underbush, charcoal and dim mineral hints.

Palate

Serious and well-crafted, with nuance and real elegance, this Tempranillo from La Rioja shows a great balance between a first-class fruit and a judicious use of oak. Lively acidity, sweet, savoury tannins and long finish with remembrances of spices and balsam.

Our personal opinion

A nice piece of work, full of subtleties, Valenciso Reserva 2014 has a remarkable ageing potential.

One of the most elegant Riojas out there. It wears its greatness lightly.
