Characteristics of Valderiz Juegabolos
Valderiz Juegabolos is a single-varietal wine made from Tinta Fina, native grapes from the D.O. Ribera del Duero. The grapes come from an estate called Juegabolos, a vineyard planted by Tomás Esteban in 1988.
Finca Juegabolos is located on very special terroir. The first stratum is formed by gravel which, as well as draining the scarce rainfall, forces the vines to put down roots in deeper stratums, which provides the wine with mineral touches and plenty of structure.
During the wine's production, no microorganisms are inoculated, allowing the native yeasts from the environment to prompt fermentation. This red wine goes through the malolactic fermentation in barrels. Subsequently, it is aged for 36 months in French oak barrels.

Ribera del Duero is a Denomination of Origin located on the northern plateau, bathed by the waters of the River Duero, where they produce delicious and recognised red wines with great complexity made from the Trinto Fino grape variety.
Tomás Esteban had the ability in the 80 years of planting vines and grafted his old high-quality strains suited to the area. Contrary to the fashion of that time he chose driving in glass, instead of espalier, because it considers more adecuate for the climate of the Ribera del Duero.
