The Valenciso Reserva is a 100% pure Tempranillo from the calcareous soils around Haro from the Rioja Alta. Compañía Bodeguera de Valenciso consciously opts for quality over quantity, so aggressive pruning takes place (yield only 38hl per hectare). This unique project in Rioja Alta had only one goal in the beginning; making one wine from only tempranillo and then marketing an excellent Rioja Reserva. This vintage is characterized by a very long maturation. Even the malolactic fermentation lasted until the summer following the harvest. The wine was aged for 17 months in French oak barrels, a third of which was new oak. The wine has subtle and elegant notes of red and black fruits, cedarwood, nutmeg and vanilla. The most striking feature here is the balance, something Valenciso is very good at. en producing classically proportioned wines with the right amount of fruit, acidity and wood. This is a wine that can only get better over the next 10 years.
