Excellent treat wine!
Excellent Value special production Ribera del Duero, best Spanish Red producers in my opinion within their price range. Suggest letting it breathe for a few hours before drinking. Classic Ribera tones, but very smooth, with lots of Oakiness and Vanilla notes coming through, and it still retains the classic individual flavours that Valduero provide, consistently across all selections. You'd be pushed to find a better Spanish red within this price range. I have also tried the Crianza, Resrva & Gran Reserva varieties, which are also excellent. Valduero are my wine of choice, and have vintages and prices to suit all occasions,with reliably good wines throughout the entire Valduero range. If you haven't yet tried Valduero, then do so now, you will not be disappointed. Not always in stock, but worth tagging, to get notificatiomns when they are back in stock. Worthy of any dinner table, and will certainly impress guests.
Un Ribera del Duero de tope, se afirma en nariz y boca como un vino singular, fragrante y sabroso con sus notas de frutas rojas, roble y vanilla. Vale bien su precio.
Perfecto. Pero un poco caro
Es un gran vino. Perfecto para ocasiones especiales. No te va a defraudar. Lo único es el precio. Deberían de abaratarlo
Très bon vin !
Un très bon rapport qualité / prix pour ce Valduero de 2016 qui mérite peu-être de vieillir encore un peu.

Ribera del Duero appellation. Gregorio García and his two daughters, Yolanda and Carolina, have developed a robust project based on three key factors: their own low-yield vineyards producing top quality grapes, a unique winery, and paying special attention to customers' preferences and to the...
