Get ready to experience the rich, round flavors of Cantos de Valpiedra, a must-try wine from the Finca Valpiedra winery in La Rioja, Spain. Made entirely from Tempranillo grapes harvested in mid-September, this wine is a true expression of the region's unique terroir. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks with a 16-day maceration before being aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels, giving the wine its intense purple color and violet glints, as well as its highly aromatic nose of black fruit and ripe sloe notes. The wine also has a pronounced minerality, with vanilla, spice, and tobacco notes from the barrel aging adding complexity and depth to its character.
At Aroma Thyme Bistro, we are excited to offer Cantos de Valpiedra as part of our exceptional wine selection. Owners Marcus and Jamie have personally visited the Finca Valpiedra winery and experienced the unique terroir and winemaking process firsthand, and they can't wait to share this special wine with you. On the palate, Cantos de Valpiedra is oily, rich, and intense, with a sweetness that coats the mouth. It has well-balanced acidity and alcohol, and is marked by the typical "Valpiedra" freshness. The finish is long, cool, and mineral, with a touch of fine woods.
