Finca Villacreces `Pruno` Ribera del Duero

Finca Villacreces `Pruno` Ribera del Duero

Finca Villacreces `Pruno` Ribera del Duero's Grapes are only taken from Finca Villacreces' own vineyards. Until recently, the estate sold this production to some of the high profile wineries in the region. Now that the vines have reached between 10 and 15 years of age, the Izadi family have begun to handpick and vinify the grapes themselves. The vineyards have a mixture of soils: sandy, gravel, shingle and quartz, each contributing different flavours. The vineyards are planted with about 75% Tempranillo (mostly on the sandy vineyards, which give an attractive fleshiness to the wines), 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (mostly on the quartz and shingle, giving more mineral complexity). Organic practices are used as much as possible and the close proximity of the river helps protect against frost. Work is currently being undertaken in the vineyards to raise the height of the canopy to obtain riper, healthier grapes.
Finca Villacreces `Pruno` Ribera del Duero is a deep, black cherry colour. Aromas of red fruit embodied with toffee and hints of oak from the ageing in French barrel revealing. The palate reveals lovely ripe fruit and a touch of liquorice.
