General information

Located in the South of Monte Yerga, the Finca Cuesta de la Reina is a caralsol hillside that begins at 450 meters of altitude and ascends to 800 meters. Its soils are clay-calcareous, poor and with abundant boulders, it is a farm of more than 120 hectares that has been in the family for four generations and in which the vineyard has always been cultivated. Approximate average age of the vineyards 25 years.

After meticulously monitoring the vineyard, the grapes are harvested at the optimum moment of maturity. The Tempranillo variety was harvested in the first fortnight of October, the Garnacha in mid-October and the Mazuelo in the last week of October and early November. The harvest is done by hand, selecting healthy and ripe grapes, rejecting the raw and deteriorated ones.

Tasting Notes Solar de Becquer Crianza

Bright ruby red color. Clean and complex on the nose, fruit aromas well matched with fine oak wood tones that stand out remarkably. Good structure in the mouth, balanced and tasty. With great character and long persistence. Complex and elegant aftertaste, aromas of red fruit and hints of quality wood.
