Finca Valpiedra Cantos de Valpiedra Rioja 2011
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
Chunky, roasted, somewhat stalky aromas are big and generous but lack purity. This feels snappy and tannic, while flavors of tomato, herbs and oak end with loamy, baked flavors. This is good stuff but it leans toward tomato sauce in flavor and feel.
The 2011 Cantos de Valpiedra has a nose of dark fruit, graphite, licorice and peat with hints of leather. It's pure Tempranillo fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for one year in oak barrels. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine texture that is ripe without excess, tasty and loaded with freshness and persistence.
