This long established family Bodega lies in the best part of Rioja, on the limestone ridges of the Alavesa region. They only use fruit from their own vineyards and have rigorous standards in the cellars in order to create wines with elegance and pungency combined with the soft spicy allure that only well made Tempranillo can offer. Valserrano is gaining a reputation amongst Rioja’s best, receiving high score from renowned wine critics.
Aged for 24 months in American and French oak. The reserva is powerful and mouth-filling with juicy berry fruit flavours and hints of toasted oak.

This is still a young Reserva, especially from a bodega that specialises in wines that age gloriously in bottle. Marrying Tempranillo with 10% Graciano, it's compact, focused and well-balanced, with crunchy black cherry and blackberry fruit framed by spicy, aromatic oak.- 90 pts Tim Atkin's Rioja 2021 Special Report
