Ultreia Rapolao 2017
El reputado enólogo Raúl Pérez elabora este vino con el fruto de la parcela El Rapolao, cuya pendiente impide que se vendimie de forma mecanizada. La añada 2014 obtuvo unos merecidos 95+ puntos Parker. En nariz encontramos cierta complejidad aromática, con recuerdos de frutos rojos maduros, sotobosque y toques minerales. En boca es muy mineral, con una acidez equilibrada y bien integrada. Producción limitada a 600 botellas.

Opinión de los críticos
I was impressed by the 2017 La Vizcaína El Rapolao, but the warm vintage was very good for a warmer vineyard like El Rapolao. This is hands-down my favorite of the 2017s from La Vizcaína, the wine that shows more freshness. It's harmonious and perhaps was harvested a little earlier than the others. Like the other wines from the range, this 2017 has more color than the 2018, as well as more power and a little more concentration, and it's also denser than the 2018, with tannins that are grittier and a little drier. But if I didn't have the 2018 next to this, I would only be praising it, because the 2017 is truly impressive, all in place and simply one step up in power and all the rest to keep the balance. 10,000 bottles were filled in May 2019. This is a late-budding vineyard, and it didn't suffer the effect of the spring hail from the year.
