Tasting Notes Valenciso Reserva

Valenciso is elegant, tasty, a wine that without weighing in the mouth, envelops it for its aromatic, subtle volume and at the same time with a firmness that makes it age very well, for years. It expresses very well the Atlantic modulations of the climate of the Rioja Alta and the goodness of the clay-soils, which are reflected in a pleasant vividness, fruit of its acidity, and in a great delicacy of very vivid aromas. Very long and persistent, balanced, rich and full of nuances: a wine that grows in the cup. A different Rioja that surprises.
