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.
Very deep flavours of blackcurrant, cherry, cedar, sandalwood and toasted oak with a long enticing finish and silky tannins. Received 95pts from Tim Atkin MW, 92 Pts from James Suckling and 92pts from Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate.

Like the winery's Reserva, this is a cuvée of Tempranillo and 10% Graciano that's aged in a combination of French and American oak. Sourced from older vines above 500 metres, it's stylish, poised and harmonious, with notes of sweet kitchen spices, berry fruit and tangy minerality.- 95 pts Tim Atkin's Rioja 2019 Special Report
