The 2013 Finca Valdepoleo is pure Tempranillo from a vineyard planted in 1973 at 630 meters altitude, located in the village of Laguardia, where the winery and all of their vineyards are located. 2013 was a rainy year with low temperatures in the spring. This wine fermented in small stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and malolactic in those same vats, followed by 14 months in French barriques. This wine clearly shows the character of the vintage: light colored and very fragrant, with floral notes, a little atypical for Pujanza. Here they aimed for lower extraction because there was less ripeness and didn't want to extract any green notes. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins and lively acidity, vibrant and lively. This is very drinkable, its freshness makes it ideal for gastronomy. I love this wine. 50,000 bottles produced.
