Finca Villacreces 2017
Procedente de una selección de parcelas con los rendimientos más bajos de la finca ubicada en Quintanilla de Onésimo, Finca Villacreces 2017 es el hermano mayor del best seller Pruno. Aporta recuerdos de fruta madura con matices minerales y balsámicos, y toques de tofe en su paso por barrica. Entrada grasa y con volumen, largo y persistente, con taninos maduros.

I also tasted the 2017 Finca Villacreces from a very challenging year that they consider very good for their vineyards despite the loss of 50% of the crop. It's a blend of Tempranillo with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot that matured in French oak barrels (50% of them new) for 14 months. I was pleasantly surprised by this wine, given the extremely challenging conditions of the year; and it didn't only show well on its own, it showed better than the 2016 that I tasted next to it! It's perhaps a lighter year, but the fruit is in the foreground; it's clean and there is no excess ripeness, and the oak felt quite integrated. It's nicely textured and sapid, almost salty. 60,128 bottles and 502 magnums were filled in June 2019.
A red that offers a wealth of plum, chocolate and walnut character. Smoky with redwood undertones. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs time to soften. Try after 2022.
