Valenciso 10 Anos Después
Latest release of this sensational Rioja, aged 10 years before release. Only the 5th incarnation of ‘10 Años Después’ the 2010 vintage follows the same, well established mantra – the simple belief that a great vintage followed by expert and patient winemaking will yield some excellent results. 2010 was very dry, even for Rioja Alta, rainfall being just over half of the historic average – this put the Tempranillo vines under just the right amount of stress to produce some perfectly concentrated fruit. Fermentation and 5 years ageing in concrete was followed by 4 years ageing in Russian oak, the extra fine grain carefully selected to ensure the fruit character and freshness isn’t undermined.
