Description

Cantos de Valpiedra Rioja

Cantos de Valpiedra Rioja has an intense aroma combining ripe sloes and black fruit with a mineral lift and cigar box/vanilla notes from the oak.

Cantos de Valpiedra Rioja has silky-textured and fresh in the mouth, with ample fruit fleshing out the supple structure.

Finca Valpiedra is located in the best area of the DOCa Rioja, on a spectacular meander of the river Ebro, and is the only Rioja among the Grandes Pagos de España (Great Estates of Spain).

Nose: Cantos de Valpiedra Rioja is highly aromatic with black fruit and ripe sloe notes.

Very mineral that, together with the vanilla, spice and tobacco notes from the barrel, give a great character to this wine.

The Tempranillo variety is very emphasized and well incorporated with the barrel.

Palate: 

Oily, rich and intense with a sweetness right across the mouth, showing great finesse. Well-balanced acidity with the alcohol, with the typical “Valpiedra” freshness predominant.

A long, cool and mineral finish, with a touch of fine woods.

Food Pairing: Vegetables and beans casseroles, hen soup. For meats it goes better with white ones, turkey, sock lamb and pork. It perfectly matches with rice rabbit and stewed pourlarde.

Awards & Scores Cantos de Valpiedra 2011:

  • Decanter 2014:   Bronze medal
  • Guía Peñín 2015:  90 points
  • Jancis Robinson:  15,5 out of 20 points

 This is because single-vineyard wines are so unusual in the region, but in this case the vineyard site itself proved so consistently outstanding that in 1994 the Martínez Bujanda family built a winery at its centre, and kept the best grapes exclusively for these special bottlings. Finca Martinez Bujanda

Warmed by the river and protected from cold north winds by the Sierra de Cantabria, the eighty hectares of Finca Valpiedra enjoy a privileged microclimate.

The soil is sandy loam and limestone, which gives excellent natural acidity, with a great many stones that help retain heat and water.

The vines average thirty years old, and the grapes were harvested in the third week of September, with a severe selection.
