Valsotillo, one of the Best Wines from Spain

Repsol Wine Guide 2010 shows a list of  the Best Wines from Spain. The list includes some of the wines of Bodegas Ismael Arroyo: Valsotillo VS Reserva Especial 2004, which gets 92 points, Valsotillo Reserva 2004 (92), Valsotillo Crianza 2005 (90) and Mesoneros de Castilla Tinto Roble 2008 (91).

Furthermore, the October 2010 issue of the Spanish magazine Restauradores offers an interesting report about the Best Wines from Spain. The tasters have selected Valsotillo VS Reserva Especial 2004 (91 points) and comment that it is an elegant Ribera del Duero wine, with the tradicional flavours of a good reserva, difficult to find nowadays in the modern winemaking.

Valsotillo Reserva 2004 gets 90 points and Valsotillo Crianza 2006 (89) is described as a balanced wine, showing the fruit over the oak flavours and with sweet tannins.
