Description

It reflects the spirit of the farm and the philosophy of Familia Martínez Bujanda. Made with tempranillo and small contributions of graciano and maturana tinta, it is a selection of the best bunches of the vineyards of the highest and deepest terraces of the most clayey soils of Finca Valpiedra. Finca Valpiedra is a long-term reserve, a current 'classic' from Rioja, subtle and elegant, and a reflection of the terroir of our estate.      2012 Vintage Report  Very dry year and very high temperatures in summer, giving very concentrated wines, with great character and ageing capacity.

Aroma

High intensity, with a big complexity and elegance in the aromatic nucleus, the mineral and red & black fruits showing up, incense reminiscences. All this goes together with the fine wood notes from the French oak tree, as vanilla, cedar, mild tobacco and spices.

Taste

In the initial phase in mouth, it shows an excellent smoothness and volume, developing a delicate tannic structure which makes it tasty and savoury.
