Details

Produced from low-yielding Tinta Fina vines planted at an altitude of 840 metres above sea level, Valduero Crianza is a modern classic from Ribera del Duero.

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 2015 was aged for a further 12 months in the cellar before its commercial release.

Decant this red wine from Ribera del Duero 1 hour before drinking.

Drink until 2025.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Valduero Crianza has an intense garnet colour with a violet rim.

Nose

This single varietal Tinta Fina from Ribera del Duero is deep and very 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.

Palate

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. Ripe, sweet tannins and well-balanced acidity. Long, complex finish.

Our personal opinion

The delicious Valduero Crianza 2015 green label is the perfect wine for the lovers of the classic Ribera del Duero style.
