Finca Valpiedra Reserva 2014

Producer: Bujanda

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.
