25 years old Mencía variety grown in our vineyard La Mendañona, located in Torre del Bierzo, on ferric clay soil at height above 700 meters.

Viticultura tradicional y sostenible.

Maceración prefermentativa en frío durante 24 horas. Fermentación alcohólica a temperatura controlada, nunca superior a 25ºC. Fermentación maloláctica en depósito, y crianza sobre lías finas en barricas de roble francés de 500 litros, durante 12 meses, antes de su embotellado final.

High cap, cherry red color. 

Clear, elegant and intense on the nose. Blackberry notes stand out, pum, blueberry and red berries. Also black pepper tones appear, clove, eucalyptus, cocoa, vanilla and mineral traits.

Wide and thick in palate, with ripe and gentle tannin. Acidity adds equilibrium to the wine volume, bringing balance and freshness. It shows great trails and persistency. Red berry, black berry, spices and a strong mineral character reappear prominently in the aftertaste.
