- Adjacent to the illustrious Vega Sicila, Finca Villacreces rises over the Duero river on limestone plots at 2300 ft. above sea-level. R. Parker raves, "... one would expect to pay $75 to $150 for a wine that tastes like this." Whereas Bottlerocket recognizes "pruno" as slang for "prison wine", for winemaker Angel Ortega, it's a metaphor for a Japanese cherry tree. Slightly classier.
