Finca Villacreces is located on the best piece of land along the Douro River in Spain. Three wine estates are located on this "golden mile", including Vega Sicilia and Finca Villacreces. A unique terroir and all possibilities to make beautiful wines. This is 'new style' Ribera: powerful, firm yet juicy tannins and vinified according to modern techniques with respect for the grape and the region. The Finca Villacreces is very aromatic and attractive on the nose. The 2017 vintage is a year with low yields (late frost and hail) but of great quality. This vintage is a blend of 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot which has been aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (50% new and 50% 2nd year). It smells of violets and exotic spices with a hint of graphite and tar. The taste is full bodied. It is a beautiful vintage in which everything is in proportion with a lot of fruit, tannins and enough acidity and a beautiful finish.
