This long established family Bodega lies in the best part of Rioja, on the limestone ridges of the Alavesa region. They only use fruit from their own vineyards and have rigorous standards in the cellars in order to create wines with elegance and pungency combined with the soft spicy allure that only well made Tempranillo can offer. Valserrano is gaining a reputation amongst Rioja’s best, receiving high score from renowned wine critics.
Made with 95% Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo, this Crianza was aged for 16 months in American and French oak.. Aromas of ripe black fruit and hints of oak and cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied with juicy fruits, soft tannins and good length.

One of the few La Marquesa wines that isn't made entirely with fruit from the bodega's own vineyards - there are bits and pieces from Lapuebla, Labastida and Lanciego - this is a mixture of Tempranillo and 5% Mazuelo, with lots of punchy, youthful, vibrant fruit, scented French and American oak and a balanced, refreshing finish. 2022-27- 91 pts Tim Atkin's Rioja 2022 Special Report
