Finca Villacreces is a red wine from D.O. Ribera del Duero, named after the estate and the winery, is a blend of the Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties that will fulfill your expectations. It is a classic red in its style: pleasant, accessible, to open and enjoy, with the guarantee of a good brand.

Finca Villacreces is the most emblematic wine of the winery, which is born and grown surrounded by privileges: the grapes come from a selection of the plots with the lowest yields of a plot located in Quintanilla de Onésimo, where the harvest is carried out completely manually by selecting the best strains of the farm, surrounded by an extraordinary natural landscape, a dream site where the centenary pines majestically skirt the Golden Mile of the Ribera del Duero. After aging 14 months in fine-grained French oak barrels, it is bottled with care and skill in all phases of the process, controlled by one of the most capable and applied viticultural teams of this denomination.

Try it and you will not be disappointed, but yes, let it rest, give it time and you will see how its aroma will be opened for you to enjoy it with pleasure. It is an ideal companion for a meal with friends around stewed meats. A noble wine rooted in the terroir that expresses its personality in every drop, powerful and honest. It will be a delight for you to contemplate the glass of this wine, ripe, elegant and elegant. Health!

4.5/5

Aromas de Moras, pedernal y chocolate, Un tinto estructurado, sabroso y profundo. Desde el corazón de la Ribera, Villacreces es uno de los mejores proyectos de los últimos años. Curioso que haya sonado mucho más su "hermano Pequeño" Pruno, Imprescindible probarlo. 93 puntos

Vi tog det med grillspett. Med Finca Villacreces Reserva firar jag en speciell händelse med min partner.
Höglagrat vin med körsbärsfärg. Aromer av ek. Det smakade sådär eftersom det smakade kork.

4/5

- Deep purple-black in colour with a powerful nose and perfumes of cassis and cranberry with a touch of spice from the oak ageing overlaid with mocha and black pepper.
- In the mouth it is rich and smooth, ripe and full with good structure and plenty of ripe, dark berry fruit, a good balance and a long finish.

I would have accompanied it with a fatty fish. I celebrated a special occasion with Finca Villacreces Reserva and my couple.
It has a very nice colour. Tea aromas. The taste of this Finca Villacreces is woody.
