Why do we love this wine?

We are delighted to welcome back one of the younger wines from a family producer based in Rioja Alavesa, where the old vines and crisp air make for magical experiences. We were lured into the world of Valserrano by the Decanter 95 point Monteviejo 2012 and a visit by wine buyer Beth confirmed it: with the expertise of five generations, they’re the kind of quality producer that we want to work with for years to come.

This Crianza, made predominantly from tempranillo (and 10% mazuelo, or carignan) walks and talks Rioja.  Cherry fruit, plums and a lick of spice.  There is an oak presence in the wine that doesn’t overpower the palate, but reminds you what you are drinking and why. This wine will be great with dishes full of punchy Iberian flavours - embutidos con pimentón (cured sausages with smoky paprika) are the order of the day.
