Valtravieso Reserva Especial 2014
Front and back

Review:

At over 900 metres above sea level, the Finca Valtravieso is the Ribera del Duero's highest vineyard. Under the influence of an Atlantic climate, with a notable difference in day and night temperatures and some strong winds, the grapes here are perfectly healthy and undergo a slow maturation. Afterwards, thanks to a production process which combines traditional with the most up-to-date methods, the winery succeeds in reflecting the region's singularity and presents wines with a distinctive personality and great balance.

If, with its Valtravieso Reserva, the winery has been offering us one of the house's finest wines, arising from meticulously chosen grapes (90% Tinta Fina, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot) and a careful vinification, it has now gone one step further by selecting the best of those wines for the production of its new Valtravieso Reserva Especial, a selection of the best Reservas with ageing for 24 months in new French oak barrels.

The result is a more polished and more elegant wine which assaults the glass with intense aromas of fruit, both ripe and crystallised, followed by others of undergrowth, blackberries, sweet almonds, chocolate and liquorice. After these, other notes impart yet more complexity to its bouquet: spices such as black pepper, coffee, cocoa and hints of vanilla and cinnamon which endow the wine with a certain sensuality and, revealed on the nose at the end, further mineral touches conferring a definite whiff of terroir and personality. On the palate we find a glorious roundness and sweetness derived from some well integrated, sweet and powerful tannins. With good acidity that brings balance and freshness to the wine, and extraordinary body which bestows fullness on the palate and makes it even longer if that's possible.
