Vallegre Reserva Tinto
Vallegre Reserva Tinto
Intense, vibrant and impressive.
Intense and complex, impressions of ripe wild berries harmoniously combined with vanilla notes from aging in oak barrels.
First attack marked by the robustness and character of the wine. The acidity and tannin structure complement each other, creating a harmonious and elegant combination. All well balanced with the flavors of the fruits of the forest. Finishes full, persistent and with an attractive freshness.

It ages in new 500 L French oak barrels for 18 months. Wine not filtered or stabilized by cold so that all its elements are respected.

2016: ROBERT PARKER CLASSIFICATION (2022):
"...This is a step up over the Valle Longo Reserva. It´s not quite as smooth, but it´s richer in mouthfeel, more expressive and better structure d. While that is at peak and more likely to go down than up in the future , this might still improve a little. The rest is similar. That is, it is rather elegant and a little understated, beautifully balanced and fresh. This does nicely. It should hold throughout most of the decade."
