This seductive Rioja comes from Finca Valpiedra – a magnificent single estate with perfectly situated vineyards, owned by one of the region’s top family producers. A serious, rich fruit red with a firm wrap of vanilla oak from a year in barriques.
Martínez Bujanda have been growers in Rioja for over a century, and since 1984, when they built a brand new, state of the art cellar, they’ve been gaining top scores from critics as well as pleasing Rioja fans. Very much of the modern school, their wines typically combine an elegant, claret like structure with thrilling intensity of fruit. Headed by Carlos Martínez Bujanda, Finca Valpiedra is a single estate with remarkably well placed vineyards and a superb, modern winery to match. They take the utmost care every step of the way. For this wine Lauren Rosillo selected finest Tempranillo, patiently maturing it in optimum conditions in the temperature and humidity controlled barrel cellar. Enjoy with lamb with rosemary or Spanish rice dishes.
"Serious stuff. Big, rich Rioja – fruit forward but still smooth and refined. Well worth the money"
