Review

New trends are very much in thanks to Cantos de Valpiedra. The Finca Valpiedra junior joined the list of the new generation of modern Riojas with its first 2005 vintage. It is the extreme opposite of the classic: powerfully intense in colour with thick tears. Fervently 100% Tempranillo, down to its roots.

As we pick up the glass, we get reminded of the warmth of very compact dark fruit, aromas of fermentation and all the relentless energy of dark roast, pure tobacco and new wood. The aromatic richness expresses itself totally and forcefully on the palate: an intense explosion of full-on fruit, an oily-rich feel and a taste of finely grained wood, finishing with a sweetly luscious touch. A wine to stimulate the senses!

Aged for 12 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels.

Delicious well balanced Rioja

Delicious well balanced Rioja which has a lovely oakey, rich flavour. Particularly enjoyable with lamb. Genuine quality wine at a good price

Aburrido

Decepcionado, un vino sin mas, plano y aburrido. Muy caro para lo que aporta, por ese precio hay vinos mejores.

Fantastico

Assaggiato la prima volta in un Parador di Cazorla . Tornato dal viaggio ne ho acquistate sei bottiglie. Secondo me un ottimo rapporto qualita' prezzo

An exceptional Crianza

An exceptional Crianza at a very good price. A good example of a fruity red Rioja, which particularly complements both red meat and cheese
