The Valbuena is obtained from plots located in concave slopes gently sloping down from the slopes of the moor.

Valbuena shows us a direct and understandable vision of the greatness of this "terroir" with the direct influence of each vintage.

The fermentation is done with indigenous yeast. After fermentation it aged in oak and bottle, five years, hence the name of the wine Valbuena 5th. French and American oak barrels 225l, new and used, vats 20,000l, a long and complex process for a great wine.

4.5/5

A great wine, which is absolutely not to be considered as a second wine. One of the rare domain to put wines on the market after years of cellar aging. It can be drunk today or keep still in the cellar for a few years.

4/5

Opaque ruby. Spice- and mineral-accented aromas of dark berries, cherry pit and potpourri, with a toasty topnote. Minerally, incisive and sweet on the palate, offering smoky cherry and blackcurrant flavors complicated by vanilla, mocha and licorice. Shows impressive power and vivacity on the youthfully tannic finish, with the smoke and spice notes strongly repeating.
