The 2017 Rioja Valdepoleo, Bodegas Pujanza is dense black cherry colour in the glass that leads to a nose leads to intense, warm aromas of up front red berry fruits with subtle notes of black fruit coming through. Fresh and complex on the palate yet well structured with a wonderful purity of fruit, polished tannins and an elegant, lengthy finish.
Valdepoleo is one of the most important vineyards belonging to Bodegas y Viñedos Pujanza and the distinctive wines that it produces are a clear expression of the terroir. Carlos San Pedro uses the grapes from here to craft a characterful harmonious Rioja which is fresh, vibrant and very subtle. It comes from a vineyard divided into seven plots which are all vinified and aged seperately. Prior to bottling, blind tasting is carried out to decide what percentage of wine from each plot will go into the final bottle.
