Finca Valpiedra is the flagship estate of Rioja ‘royalty’ Martínez Bujanda, and its wines enjoy huge international acclaim. Crafted from finest estate grown Tempranillo and aged nearly two years in barrel, this mellowed Reserva is lavish and complex.
Finca Valpiedra Reserva is a very special release from the much lauded Martínez Bujanda family. This is their top level, they eschew Gran Reserva. Growers in the Rioja region since 1889, they built a state of the art cellar in 1984 and have never looked back. They have always had a very innovative approach to winemaking and a reputation for outstanding quality. In the 1990s, they bought the impressive Valpiedra estate, nestled in a bend of the Ebro river. Here, a beneficial microclimate helps produce exceptional wines. Tempranillo supported by perfumed Graciano and the very rare Maturano Tinto grape, this wine is matured in new French oak casks. Rich, elegant and well structured, almost like a claret, it'll make a grand partner with lamb.
