Finca Villacreces Pruno 2017

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainGrupo Artevino was founded by the Anton Family, who came to wine via the restaurant world. The family owns the Michelin starred Zaldiaran. The first venture in the wine world was Bodegas Izadi in Rioja, and over the next decade they added Villacreces (Ribera del Duero), Vetus (Toro), and Orben (Rioja). The wine is delicious, and one you want to drink to the finish. I’m told the grapes used to go into Flor de Pingus. The blend is 90/10 tempranillo and cabernet sauvignon, with 12 months of oak ageing. There is a sense of fruit purity and minerality here, with noticeable tannins, but it's more dense than grippy. Best with any grilled entrée. Super value.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
