Review

Viñas Viejas is the flagship of Hacienda Solano, a wine made from vines of more than 60 years of family ownership. The freshness typical of the strong thermal contrasts and the more than 800 meters of altitude, is felt in every sip of this wine, giving it a remarkable elegance among the reds of the Ribera del Duero. The delicate vines, treated without systemic ones, require a manual harvest in small boxes and a meticulous selection of the grapes that allow only the best fruit to reach the winery.

In order to preserve the unique character of each plot, the vinifications of each small piece of land pass separately. Both the pre-fermentation maceration and the fermentation itself take place at a controlled temperature to preserve all the freshness of the fruit. The fur hat is soaked to prevent rusting and to ensure accurate removal. Once converted into wine, it will continue to be in contact with the skins for a week, prior to its 14-month aging in barrels and 4 months of rest in the tank, prior to bottling, which will guarantee its perfect harmony.

We are dealing with a floral wine, elegant and with a good body. With each new vintage the oak seems better integrated and the fruit somewhat fresher. The set is of a great balance and elegance, with the chalky tannins derived from the limestone floors giving it a stately bearing. The spicy and smoky aromas intermingle with those of wild berries adorning a round and mature palate. It perfectly shows the style of the house, which seeks the typicality of the riverside wine without giving up showing the natural freshness of the old vines planted under the cool climate of La Aguilera. Its minerality and extraordinary structure predict a great future, while its austerity and silky touch speak of balance and refinement.

Good value

The wine shows plenty of promise, not as smooth as the 2014 but a year in the bottle should bring it closer to the 2014 quality

I loved the finesse and balance of this wine, elegant with a long finish. I would certainly buy this wine again.

Añada 2016

Sensacional en su ataque con una acidez alta, gran amplitud y con los taninos emergiendo de menos a más proporcionando un paso por boca cremoso y amable para tornarse en algo más ásperos sorbo a sorbo. Curiosa mutación tánica, de la seda a la rebelión astringente ):. Los aromas retronasales nos recuerdan al culís de fresa dando pie a un post-gusto frutoso con notas de higos secos y de nuevo con un repunte de mineralidad.. Al final es un vinazo, corpulento, de alta extracción y manteniendo un fondo amaderado con la barrica omnipresente, muy elegante. Su persistencia es de dos minutos y 15 seg

Preiswerte Abwechslung

ein gefälliger, soeben neu entdeckter Wein, der mich echt positiv überrascht. Schöne Frucht, Power und gute Konzentration, dunkle oder schwarze Beeren, etwas Tabak und Schoko. Schöne und günstigere Abwechslung zu Hacienda Monasterio, Pesquera Reserva oder Protos Reserva.

Top Notch!

Hervorragender Weingenuss – gerade im Sommer ist ein frischer und dennoch aromenreicher, strukturierter, sehr eleganter und hochwertiger Rotwein ein besonderes Erlebnis!

Wine from Hacienda Solano

Hacienda Solano

Hacienda Solano is a small family-owned winery in La Aguilera, a historic village in Burgos and home to some of the best vineyards in the DO Ribera del Duero appellation. The winery's plots, some of which are a hundred years old, thrive in extreme climatic conditions at altitudes of around 1000 metres. The terrain plus the small size of the plots mean mechanized farming methods are out of the question. The oenologist Sophie Khün, from Alsace and with a long professional...
