Front and back

Review:

Finca Villacreces is the bodega's emblematic wine, one which starts life and grows up surrounded by privileges: a grape selection from the estate's best vines whose vineyards adjoin those of Vega Sicilia; an exceptional natural landscape, set amongst century-old pine trees right on the Ribera del Duero's 'Golden Mile; 14 months of ageing in fine-grained barrels made of French oak; and the expertise at all times of one of this denomination's most competent and diligent wine-producing teams. A real classic in the Ribera del Duero already.

It's also a classic red in style: pleasurable, accessible, for opening up and enjoying, with the guarantee of an eminent brand name and a prestigious group, that of the Antón family, Izadi or Artevino, as they are better known. It's made primarily with Tempranillo grapes, but small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot have been added which further enhance its elegance and enrich the blend overall.

The end result is a wine that's a dark Picota cherry colour and exudes expressive aromas of ripe fruit, fine cocoa, creamy oak, leather notes, orange peel, tobacco, balsamic and subtle menthol wafts. It's flavoursome on the palate, with a delicate earthy undertone, hints of graphite and floral nuances. It's not an opulent red, but it's definitely refined. Noble and rooted in its terroir. Fresh and honest. Still young and spirited, yet mature and elegant. Allow it some time, decant it and you'll see how much pleasure it can give, offering more with every glassful. A sweet, spicy, polished palate, with good structure, not exceptionally complex but decidedly rich without being overstated. Classic, noble and pure Ribera.
