We show you the production of the red wine from Rioja: Valdelacierva Grano a Grano 2016 . (Only 589 botles)
A unique estate “La Pedriza” with only one variety – Garnacha – producing 1997 bottles of Tudelilla (Rioja Baja) .
The line of work we started several years ago has as main goal to work in two lines in the making process of its wines; the first one is referred to meet the expectations of the consumers who look for easy-drinking and uncomplicated wines; and the second one, a more special line, of wines which are born from the terroir, with microvinifactions in large barrels that allow the elaboration of wines differentiated by estates and aged in French oak. In this way, only small-scale productions, which the land produces with each vintage, come onto the market. This is how Valdelacierva Garnacha is born; which by its owne essence it emerges from the “La Pedriza” estate with unique characteristics – with a harvesting process that begins in the estate and continues on the winery, where it grows as wine.
With a very attractive dense violet colour, on the nose it is characterized by fresh aromas with balsamic hints, with an explosion of fresh red berries and a marked mineral finish. Silky and soft in the palate with a nice walk in the mouth and it doesn’t leave any of its consumers indifferent.
Moreover, it carries the simplest label where only appears the brand name without any other distracting elements. In fact, it is the sense of touch which is the main protagonist here, playing an excellent role that in a special way portrays the sense of touching the land and all the primary elements involved in the process of creating this special vintage.
By CAROLYN EVANS HAMMOND: ” If you’ve ever hosted a traditional Thanksgiving feast, you know the costs can add up. There’s the big bird to buy, the fixings, the pie, the centrepiece and of course the wine. I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great bottle of wine. So here are five tasty, crowd-pleasing bottles that go well with turkey — each for less than $16:
2012 Bodegas Valdelacierva, Rioja, Spain
Those who like big, lush reds no matter what they’re eating will no doubt enjoy this undervalued bottle just released in Vintages. This stellar oak-aged Tempranillo exudes warm aromas of stewed cherries and vanilla bean then swathes the palate with cashmere flavours of sweet macerated berries, toasted nut, warm toffee, cherry and blueberry. It’s quite a characterful, smart wine that is well worth snapping up.

Valdelacierva grano a grano is the latest added wine to the winery. A special product, featuring wines that are born from the terroir, with microvinifications in large barrels differentiated by estate andageing process in French oak.In this way, only small-scale productions, which the land produces with each vintage, come onto the market. This is how Valdelacierva Grano a Grano (or grain by grain) is born; in essence it emerges from the “La Botija” estate with its own unique characteristics -a harvesting process that begins out in the estate, destemming grape by grape and grain by grain in the winery- and eventually grows into a wine.
With a very attractive dense cherry red colour, it has an intense nose of red and black fruits with milky undertones and a subtle spicy touch, characteristic of a good mature tempranillo with cocoa and toffees. A very complex wine on account of its ageing in large French oak barrels, powerful and velvety on the palate with an agreeable and inviting persistence.
