Tempos Vega Sicilia 'Valbuena No. 5' 2015
WINE TYPE: Red
VARIETAL: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Merlot
REGION: Castilla y Leon
APPELLATION: Ribera del Duero
This historic producer has been making wine in Ribera del Duero for over 150 years. Valbuena is their purest expression of Tempranillo grown along the Duero river, with a small addition of Merlot.
2015 was a powerful vintage, yet the wine remains lifted and fresh with a long, textured palate.
