TASTING NOTES

Small quantities of rosado are produced from the same old-vine Tempranillo grapes from chalky clay soils that produce Valenciso Reserva. This process (saignée in French) is typical of cooler red wine regions and is done periodically to ensure the consistency and concentration of the red. The very rare Valenciso Rosado is a fresh, elegant and complex wine without oak aging that fully expresses the noble character of the variety.

PRESS

Valenciso Rosado (2016) - "One of the more serious Rioja rosés on the market, this is made as an unoaked saignée, like a scaled-down red wine. It's a crunchy, appealing pure Tempranillo with lots of sap, a hint of tannin and tangy raspberry and pomegranate fruit flavours. "

COMPAñíA BODEGUERA VALENCISO WINERY INFO

Overview: Founded for the 1998 vintage by Luis Valentín and Carmen Enciso, (Val-Enciso), Rioja natives with extensive careers in the making and commercialization of fine Rioja wines. Valenciso's objective is to produce a flagship wine combining the best characteristics of both traditional and modern Rioja, released exclusively as Reserva. Aromatic volume and fruit integrity is the Valenciso ideal. Vineyards established in chalky-clay soils at Rioja Alta’s northwestern extreme are organically farmed. Fermentation, malolactic and clarification are accomplished naturally in modern-construction cement vats.

History: Founded for the 1998 vintage by Luis Valentín and Carmen Enciso, (Valen-Ciso, Val-en-THEECE-oh), Rioja natives with extensive experience in the making, tasting and commercialization of Rioja wines. Minority partners include former managers of Radoux, makers of the finest French oak barriques, and growers in the best areas of the Rioja Alta.

Valenciso's objective is to produce a single wine of the highest quality and authenticity, released as Reserva. Only the best Tempranillo grapes are used, from mature, low-yielding vineyards. Of the available fruit from the grower-partners, only a small percentage is selected. Careful harvesting is timed to capture the intensity of the fruit, while avoiding overripeness or excessive alcohol levels. Aromatic volume rather than physical weight - in the manner of French Burgundy and the greatest Riojas of the past - is the Valenciso ideal.

Aging takes place in the finest cork-grade (flor) French oak barriques, one-third replaced each year. Time in oak is dependent upon vintage characteristics, and is determined upon exhaustive tasting.

Valenciso's impeccable sense of proportion demonstrates rare winemaking maturity. Perfect balance offers early accessibility, while the evident structure, fresh acidity and fruit intensity promise many years of positive bottle evolution.
