After purchasing Finca Villacreces in 2004, the Anton family began the hard work of reinvigorating their vines while also ending contracts by which they sold a significant portion of their fruit to neighbors. In the process, they began to notice that some of their plots – those adjacent to the Duero on sandier soils – made an elegant and refreshing style of wine in comparison to the more dense and concentrated, classic Ribera del Duero. Thus Pruno was born by combining fruit from these sandier terroirs with fruit from the clay soils further from the river. It represents one of the greatest values in Ribera del Duero coming entirely from estate vineyards centered and an ancient grove of pines, surrounded on two sides by the Duero river and with Vega Sicilia on one remaining border, and a vineyard belonging to Pingus on the other. Nice address!
Ribera del Duero in north-central Spain takes the native Tempranillo varietal to soaring heights. This noble grape, which makes soft and subtle wines in Rioja, is transformed into bold, luscious, fruit-driven, concentrated reds by Ribera's pioneering winemakers. The region is the ideal wine destination for those who love modern-style, new-world reds but are eager to explore European regions. Finca Villacreces Pruno Tinto Ribera del Duero was sourced from grapes (Tempranillo plus a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon) grown near the famed Vega Sicilia property and is a TOTAL STEAL per bottle, you will swear you are drinking a wine that is much pricier.
