Valbuena, is the purest expression of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino is clearly the predominant wine in the assemblage of the varieties that make up this magnificent wine. The other variety used is Merlot, which is added to a greater or lesser extent depending on the vintage.

A fresher, Atlantic-influenced, somewhat more productive vintage. They had to be stricter during selection, but these vintages provided a touch of zing and verticality to the wines, which is wonderful. They were able to squeeze extraction somewhat more for the 2018, and increased the influence of wood during the first year of ageing, particularly American oak (5 %). During the second year of ageing, the vat worked on this complexity of nuances and particularly the elegance of the texture.

This wine is suitable for drinking now, but it can be aged for up to 25 years if stored in the ideal conditions.
