Details for Vizcarra 2016
Bottle size and vintage
A great concentration of fruit, with the structure and elegance so typical of a good Ribera del Duero, luscious and lengthy, that’s Vizcarra. A wine with a captivating nose and real soul, elegant, aromatic, expressive, generous, and one to drink and enjoy rather than spend time discussing.
Perhaps we do need a few details. Black fruit, notes of cinnamon, ginger and toasted biscuits: fresh, smooth, profound and very intense. Precisely because of its intensity on the nose, we’re expecting a powerful wine, which it certainly is, but also seamless, silky and very well-balanced. It is very much a fruit-driven wine and, although not possessing great complexity, it reveals coffee and chocolate notes on the palate, and is slightly sweet, with good acidity, fresh and appealing; a most enjoyable wine that leaves us with a very pleasant taste in the mouth, displaying mineral undertones and a subtle hint of caramel.
Vizcarra is a genuine Ribera but it also has a special juicy quality which reminds us in its expression of certain Rioja wines; a Tempranillo, when all is said and done. A wine to drink now or to keep, whichever you prefer, as Vizcarra will definitely never disappoint.

Delicious an excellent value for money
Starts slowly but develops beautifully on the mid palate and finishes strongly. Great balance between the oak, tannins and acidity and definitely not put out of balance by the relatively high alcohol level.by: Condado de Baco (26/12/2018) - Vintage 2015
Correcto, pero mejorable
Vino correcto, aunque mejorable en muchos aspectos. En cualquier caso la añada es excelente, por lo que su elección no nos defraudará.by: Philip (18/04/2018) - Vintage 2014
Reliable and good value
Vizcarra is always good, and often better than many other Riberas costing more. This is rounded and vibrant, but, for me, lacks the complexity needed for five stars. By comparison, Parada de Atauta costs a little more, but is a definite five star Ribera.by: Israel (01/11/2018) - Vintage 2014
El vino es increible, el problema está en el corcho. De 6 botellas compradas más de la mitad se rompe el corcho al intentar abrir la botella. Por ese motivo no le doy la máxima puntuación, porque el vino se lo merece. Por favor, cambiar el proveedor de corcho.
