Characteristics of Calderona Reserva
Viña Calderona Reserva is a red wine from the D.O. Cigales made by Bodega Frutos Villar. Frutos Villar arrived in Cigales in 1960 and founded the current winery which has 105 hectares of Tempranillo vineyards. The hard work of generations in this DO have resulted in the fantastic wines Calderona and Conde Ansúrez, which have made Frutos Villar the leading winery in this DO.
Viña Calderona Reserva is made 100% with Tempranillo grapes. It is subject to a traditional maceration in stainless steel deposits with the grapes completely destemmed. 3 or 4 pump overs lasting for 30 minutes are carried out daily. The fermentation takes place at 28-30ºC for 18-25 days. The wine is then devatted and left to rest before filling the barrels.
This wine ages in American (85%) and French (15%) barrels for 18 to 24 months, depending on its development, and is racked every 3 months. It also ages in the bottle for at least 9 months before going on to the market.

Until recently, the D.O Cigales was a region that produced wines that were defined by the rural and traditional nature of the region and its ancient history. The wines here were made using traditional techniques such as stone vats, treading the grapes by foot and fermentation left to the vagaries of nature. However, over the past two decades, the reality of wine here has become something very different. One only has to enter any of the of the region’s renowned wineries to notice that their wines have taken the highway of modernity, shaking off their old reputation. The region has continued to produce rosés, although they are now juicier, fresher and well balanced. The region is also leaning ever more towards the production of red wines, following the example set by other regions along the Duero river, although perhaps with the difference that here they may be easier to drink.
