The Finca Valdepoleo is a wine that comes from 1 vineyard. Owner Carlos San Pedro believes this is the vineyard with the most potential. The vineyard was planted in 1973 with Tempranillo at an altitude of 630 meters. The Valdepoleo is fermented in small stainless steel vats, after which the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. In the glass, the Valdepoleo has a dark ruby red color with a very attractive and suggestive nose with fresh and warm aroma; mainly of red berries with subtle notes of black fruit, memories of fragrant blossoms and spices. Fresh and complex. In the mouth, the wine is delicate and elegant. It is a harmonious, complex wine with body and backbone, polished tannins and no sharp edges. Very balanced. The Pujanza Finca Valdepoleo is a beautiful, modern Rioja.

Carlos San Pedro is the owner of Bodegas Pujanza who takes an almost manic approach to producing wines of the highest level. Carlos' original idea was to produce a single single vineyard with Pujanza from Laguardia - the capital of the Rioja. But gradually it became clear that the terroirs of the vineyards are unique and different, so he changed his mind and decided to blend the uniqueness of the terroirs in some of his wines. The Valdepoleo is the first wine that is completely single vineyard and it is expected that more wines will follow in the future. Carlos does not use external yeasts, and he consciously chooses to keep the amount of new wood low, but also to age the wines longer in large (used) barriques. Bodegas Pujanza has about 30 hectares of vineyards, all of which are located close to beautiful Bodega. The vineyards are all between 600 (Cisma) and 720 meters (Norte) altitude.
