The summit of an idea reaches the top of the most prestigious list in the wine world. In this industry, where tradition and quality converge, Valduero Lantigua 1991 is crowned the most precious and expensive wine in Spain, according to Wine Searcher.
Located at the top of the Ribera del Duero, the Valduero winery leads artisan production and natural cultivation in the region, the fruits of which are obvious. Valduero Lantigua 1991 represents the pinnacle of the dedication of Yolanda García Viadero, creator of Bodegas Valduero. In her opinion, this wine is a dream come true that was born from “the summit of an idea” and that today is a masterpiece that reflects that only perfectionism leads to excellence.
With an altitude of 890 meters and vineyards that are more than 70 years old, the clay and limestone land provides the unique essence of Tempranillo, cultivated with an extraordinarily low yield of 1,000 kg/Ha. However, the wine essence of Valduero Lantigua 1991 goes beyond its exquisite flavor, as it is guided by an eco-sustainable philosophy. Thus, the grapes, selected by hand, come from vineyards that are not irrigated, respecting aquifers and allowing a natural concentration that gives the wines enviable longevity. The underground vaults, dug into the mountains, offer an ideal environment for aging without the need for energy expenditure. With an outstanding score of 97 points on Decanter, this exceptional vintage from 1991 stands as an oenological jewel, which has been aged for approximately 25 and 30 years. Likewise, it is capable of capturing the original properties, transforming it into a subtle and elegant wine, impeccably maintaining the characteristics of a Spanish wine that fills us with pride.
