Details for Pujanza Finca Valdepoleo 2016
Bottle size and vintage
Finca Valdepoleo is one of Pujanza's most emblematic vineyards. A vineyard characterised by a soil with more clay in its composition than the one that gives rise to Pujanza Norte, and where each year Carlos San Pedro and his team carry out precise work on parcels of land following orographic criteria. The 2011 vintage year was the right time to launch his own wine, called in full Pujanza Finca Valdepoleo, a limited production wine, authentic in every single vintage.
Finca Valdepoleo is a classy wine. Elegant. Fruit-forward. It reflects the Tempranillo's character extremely well, delivering very ripe and fresh fruit, blackberries and blueberries, yet the ageing notes starting things off —definitely very well integrated—, sweet toasty touches, aromas of incense and charcoal, fine wood, subtle leather, aromas of undergrowth and damp leaves, with a dry undertone of tobacco... which might lead us to suppose a blend with an international varietal. An interesting, evocative wine, particularly evocative on the nose.
Finca Valdepoleo is also a Rioja in every sense of the word. It pleases lovers of both classic and modern Rioja. It's been made expertly and very tastefully. It has moderate acidity, making it especially pleasant on the palate, and setting the wine up for really decent cellaring. The primary aromas stand out and the fruit is powerful, yet at no point does it show any excesses of concentration nor overwhelm, just enveloped by a pleasing minerality and balsamic touch. Such a pleasure to drink.
NOTE: With differences according to the nature of each vintage, this wine began exhibiting its finest qualities from the fourth year. We recommend aerating or decanting this wine half an hour before serving.

Nueva y brillante Rioja
Nada más abrirlo notarás recuerdos astringentes que desaparecerán en media hora de oxigenación. Es un vino muy bien hecho, con las características de la Rioja, como la sobremaduración controlada y la madera usada, pero muy cuidado. Nada que ver con un Rioja de supermercado.by: Davo (15/02/2018) - Vintage 2014
It's a little thin (young) but still a really nice drop. Probably could do with several years in the cellar and would be a great drop.by: Mark D, London (23/11/2017) - Vintage 2013

Those very first bottles made on the family's premises held a unique wine which featured th...
