The 2021 Unculín is now a vino de villa from Valtuille de Abajo and is labeled as such. This is the entry-level red from over 100 separate plots, old vines normally planted with a Mencía field blend, mainly on stone and clay soils. It fermented with some 15% full clusters and matured in stainless steel, finishing with a couple of months in foudre. This is a young wine that is characterful and a bit wild, with notes of ink, berries, flowers and herbs. It has moderate ripeness, 13% alcohol and a tender, silky and balanced palate.
