VALDETRILLO

Score is an average of two or more recognised professional reviews
Description
“It’s a museum,” says Javier Arizcuren of this ancient, 19th century parcel of 1.36 hectares at 762 metres. Combining Garnacha with 4% Malvasía and other bits and pieces, Valdetrillo is a classic high-altitude, old-vine red, with effortless concentration, notes of wild mountain herbs, meaty blackberry and blueberry fruit, granular tannins and wonderful minerality and palate length. 2023-31″

Valdetrillo is an ungrafted vineyard of uncertain age which bears the scars of the evolution of viticulture through the 20th century; when beasts gave way to tractors in the vineyards of La Rioja, 50% of the vines were grubbed up. The important thing is that it is still here, with its wounds, but giving us magnificent grapes, year after year, with which to make a great wine.
