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.

Jaime de Simón deliberately picks out the wines with the most structure and acidity for his Gran Reserva blend to ensure that it has a long life. Tempranillo and 10% Graciano make up the blend here and are just starting to evolve into something with subtle forest floor and balsamic notes. Still young, this will reward cellaring.- 94 pts Tim Atkin's Rioja 2021 Special Report
