Valenciso Rioja Reserva 2015


The most sweetly fruited of traditional Rioja, with rich cassis, raspberry, morello cherry, sweet vanilla, sandalwood and oiled leather. The oak is perfectly integrated, so often it’s raw in traditional Rioja upon release, but not here. Flavours folded, glistening, melting tannins ever present, that soften towards the close. It’s very hard to resist now, so drink some now, and one a year for at least twenty years. A very seductive evolution. Waters Wine Co


Back to 2010, is how Luís Valentín describes the style of his 2015, a vintage that he rates highly. Sourced from 29 parcels in Briones, Haro, Ollauri, Rodezno and Villalba, it’s a pure Tempranillo that sees 33% new wood and is fresh, floral, textured and refined, with some sweet spices and a core of red berry and black cherry fruit embellished with chalky minerality. 2022-30. 94 points – Tim Atkin, 2021 Rioja Report
