Vintage: 2009
Bottle: 75 cl


Valbuena, is the purest expression of the Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Vega Sicilia. Tinto Fino is clearly the predominant wine in the assemblage of the varieties that make up this magnificent wine. The other variety used is Merlot, which is added to a greater or lesser extent depending on the vintage. The Valbuena Tempranillo is obtained from plots located on gentle concave slopes that descend from the wasteland. Those soils are made up of material that was eroded and accumulated as colluvial on the lower slopes, developing a high profile soil, with a specific important evolution with the formation of a deep calcic horizon. Valbuena provides us with a direct and understandable view of the greatness of this "terroir" with the direct influence of each vintage. Its production remains unchanged meaning that it is each year's weather factors that mark the differences between the different harvests. Fermentation at a controlled temperature with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation also takes place in stainless steel. After fermentation, it is aged for five years, between wood and in the bottle, which is why it is called Valbuena 5º. French and American wood, new and used 225-litre barrels, 20,000 litre vats, a long and complex process for a great wine.

Vega Sicilia

Product by: Vega Sicilia

From its location in the Ribera del Duero, an area of community interest for the European Union, the estate is managed from a prism of absolute respect for the environment and surroundings. A series of targets has been set that range from enhancing the natural system and the different habitats of the estate to a system to prevent forest fires, and including managing the vines in a way that is adapted to the soil and climate of the area or planting oak and cork woodland. As regards the wine-growing area, special mention should be made of solely organic fertilization of the land, of the absence of herbicides and of the rational fight against plagues and diseases based on biological fighting techniques.
