Details

Finca Villacreces Nebro is the flagship wine of the highly-respected Finca Villacreces winery, based in Ribera del Duero.

Only produced in exceptional vintages, this red wine is a single varietal, single-vineyard Tinta Fina coming from very old vines located in the town of Olmedillo, Valladolid, at the very heart of Ribera del Duero's "Golden Mile".

The vineyard is planted on a hill located at an altitude of 810 metres above sea level. Soils are composed of lime and sand.

Harvest of this exceptional red wine of Finca Villacreces was carried out by hand. Grapes were selected both in the vineyard and in the cellar.

After that, they were destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Then the wine was transferred into new French oak barrels, where it completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels.

Production of only 2,134 bottles.

Finca Villacreces Nebro 2009 will improve beautifully in the bottle for a minimum of 15 years. 

Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Intense, clean, bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Complex, deep varietal expression. Blueberries, blackcurrants, spices, graphite, wet earth, broom, withered flowers, cassis and some mineral undertones. On the background, aromas of toast and intriguing remembrances of iode and charcoal.

Palate

Elegant and luxurious, with plenty of room for growth. Real complexity, a deep sense of terroir and first-class fruit. Bold tannins, tremendous acidity and a velvety texture. Long, evocative finish with some spicy and toasted remembrances, along with mineral undertones.

Our personal opinion

Finca Villacreces Nebro 2009 is a voluptuous wine that time will slowly sculpt to perfection.
