Review

In the opinion of North American guru Robert Parker, Pruno is an astonishing wine, one that delivers more and more and we're convinced that many of our clients will support this assertion; not without good reason Pruno always figures amongst our best-selling wines, vintage after vintage. It's a fresh, accessible wine, always reasonably priced, and in a style which usually suits most palates: aromatic, fruit-forward, elegant, juicy...

Pruno is made from Tempranillo (90%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%) grapes, using the first clusters that are harvested on the estate from the younger vineyards, planted out in parcels with soils of differing composition; that diversity is reflected in the wine's complex and rich character.

Pruno is the type of wine that fills the mouth with lots of fruit, blueberries and blackcurrants, hints of liquorice and graphite, and reveals a lovely texture. It's persistent on the palate, and rounding off the ensemble are some subtle ageing notes which are very well-integrated.

In short, it's a wine always to have at home, one which can be enjoyed when recently released or at any time during the ensuing 4-5 years.

Smooth red

The Pruno 2018 is a very enjoyable drink, with a smooth finish. Would recommend with food rather than alone. Will definitely order again

Great value

Tried this wine in Segovia and loved it and found it on Vinissimus and tastes really good in Ireland too.

Finca Villacreces

Finca Villacreces

Finca Villacreces is one of those wineries that are gifted by nature: located in the renowned Milla de Oro (the Golden Mile) in Ribera del Duero, their vineyards border those of Vega Sicilia and its surroundings (pine woods, olive groves and junipers) not only feature beautiful scenery but add a particular identity to their wines. There is no doubt about the quality of the wines produced by Finca Villacreces and the reputation of the winery is enhanced by that of the other...
