The Valtravieso estate is located in the heart of the Ribera del Duero, surrounded by its vineyards and lying at over 900 metres above sea level. It's the denomination's highest vineyard plantation. Here, the Atlantic climate, with its hugely contrasting day and night temperatures, a very poor stony soil, with clay on the surface and limestone bedrock, as well as strong winds, provide the main factors favouring the perfectly healthy condition of the vines, a slow ripening and, after some care and attention in the winery, the emergence of wines of great balance.
Valtravieso is a dynamic winery that also manages to combine tradition with the most advanced production processes. Its wines are mostly made from Tempranillo (or Tinta Fina), with small additions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot which enrich their complexity. Wines which reflect the region's singularity, yet are distinguished by their own distinctive personality.
Valtravieso Reserva is one of their best wines and, with its powerful tannins having been tamed, it offers a fantastic roundness and sweetness, thanks to that combination of altitude, climate, soil and meticulous care. A wine of intense brightness and excellent depth, with some delightful fruit aromas, undergrowth notes, blackberries, chocolate and liquorice, all assaulting the nose; a blend brimming with sensuality and revealing a mineral undertone that makes its character stand out even more. Balanced and fresh, full-bodied, generous and concluding with a long finish.

Sehr guter Jahrgang
Ein Wein in dem Alter als Riserva ausgebaut und mit so viel Weinsorten ist bestimmt ausgereift und lang genug gelagert in der Flasche ! Auf Grund der Menge (Magnum-Flasche) habe ich den Wein noch nicht geöffnet.
Wine from Bodegas y Viñedos Valtravieso
Valtravieso started up in 1985 on an estate called La Revilla, located in the Valladolid town of Pinel de Arriba, right in the heart of the Ribera del Duero. It was here that the first experimental grapevines were planted and the first vintage to be put on the market was the 1994, which was their Crianza. However, it wasn't until the González Beteré family acquired the property in 2002 that Valtravieso's wines really got underway. The Valtravieso philosophy is based on the...
