Founded in 1988, Bodegas Valdelacierva belongs to Hispanbodegas Group which owns wineries in the three most important Appellations in the country: Rioja, Ribera Del Duero, and Rueda. Valdelacierva is located in the heart of Rioja Alta (Navarrete) and it has 200 hectares of vineyards, which are divided in small plots with vines that are between 25-130 years old. The winery has a young and dynamic character and it is inclined towards the elaboration of modern wi-nes, with the seal of the land and the Tempranillo grape variety as protagonists. The wines come from selected vineyards of the localities of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, Briones, Baños de Ebro and Yécora.

Winemaking:

The wine is aged on open tanks of 700ltr with a manual pigeage system during the days of the alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature of 22ºC. It is a very careful process from which Valdelacierva Garnacha borns. Then it takes place the malolactic fermentation in new French oak casks of 500ltr capacity in order to balance at the maximum the wood contribution respecting the subtle red fruit of these old interesting vines. This time on the casks during 7 months gives to the wine oily and volume hints on the mouth but not losing the typical freshness of the Garnacha variety on the nose.
