From one of Spain’s premier red wine regions noted for top quality reds from the Tinto Fino grape variety aka Tempranillo, with an added 10% of Cabernet Sauvignon for complexity. Aromas of red fruit with hints of toasty oak from aging in French barrels for 12 months, leading to sweet dark fruits on the palate with a touch liquorice.
Finca Villacreces, Pruno, Ribera del Duero
£19.20 Per Bottle
The stunning Finca Villacreces estate is located in Quintanilla de Onesimo on the ‘golden mile’, in the heart of Ribera del Duero DO. The 155 hectare property is bordered by the River Duero to the north and by the vineyards of Vega Sicilia to the west. It was purchased by Lalo Antón of Izadi in 2003 to add further scope to their wine portfolio. The vineyards are now farmed organically, with canopy management and natural treatments used instead of artificial chemicals. As expected, Tempranillo is the mainstay of the vineyards, with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon also planted.
