From 90 year old vineyards in Valtuille de Abajo, Bierzo, this unoaked joven red is the essence of the Mencía grape.
Bright ruby red in colour with violet reflections, the nose is vibrant and fruity, blackberries and red cherries intermingling with hints of balsamic, lavender and mint. The texture is what makes this wine though, a silky, minerally base that allows the fruit to roll off the tongue and provides ample length to enjoy more earthy and floral notes — walnut, liquorice, rose — as they reveal themselves.
Enjoy with roast spring lamb, charcuterie or hard cheeses.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Valtuille wines produce year after year one of the best and freshest Mencías."
