Located in San Martín de Rubiales, Valdepila is a small valley that sweeps down from the highlands of Ribera del Duero at 900m altitude down to the Duero river. Composed of limestone, sand and clay, the Milénico dryfarmed vineyards here lie at 850m. This high altitude gives a big contrast between day and night-time temperatures, and allows longer, slower ripening of the grapes, ultimately providing the perfect combination of concetratino and freshness in the final wine. The Valdepina cuvée is aged for around 12 months in a mix of new and one-year-old 225l French oak barrels.


Tasting Notes

Like Vega Sicilia, with the intensity and depth, yet also an unrivalled finesse, beauty and class for a wine made from the Rioja grape, that is the hallmark of the best wines from this area. Beautiful flavours and complexity (the wine is a blend of 5 small plots, and each is a different variant of Tempranillo) with such a cornucopia of spicy dark-fruited balsamic flavours. Every drop feels like an indulgence.
