Valenciso wines are beautifully understated and elegant. Well-made and far from ostentatious, they blend the best of tradition with fine modern practice.

Pungent meaty and curranty aromas, and hints of cedar and spice. Produced purely from Tempranillo, and aged in new French and American oak barriques, this wine shows all the elegance of the variety, soft-bodied and smooth. Delicate and velvety, with plenty of complexity, and a strong core.

Valenciso, created in 1998, is a collaboration between ex Bodegas Palacios’ Luis Valentin and Carmen Enciso. Guided by quality and integrity and a crystal clear vision, they seek to make classically structured, subtle and elegantly fine wines, 100% Tempranillo from low yielding old vines in the Rioja Alta. Winemaker Alicia Eyaralar uses exclusively French barriques, a third being new each year, to produce around 100,000 bottles each vintage. Harvested in October; yields are 5.200 kilos per hectare.

Aged for 14 months in French oak. Valenciso only produces Reserva wines.

Ideal with red meats, strong cheeses, game pie.

“ 2010 Vintage: Dried cherry, berry, tea, tobacco, vanilla and spice flavours mingle in this lean, gentle red. Modest tannins and light acidity keep this lively as the elements float across the palate and glide into a spicy finish. Graceful, in the traditional style. Drink now through 2022"
Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator

The only Rioja by the glass at Ferran Adria's Restaurant El Bulli, voted best restaurant in the world for 2007 and 2006 by Michelin
