Made with Mencía, a type of medium-bodied red wine grape that produces floral aromas and red fruity wine. Grown in the foothills overlooking the valley north of the Bierzo region, this producer still holds 4 hectares of old Mencía vines with some white grenache and Dona grape varieties. The destemmed grapes are then vinified with indigenous yeasts and without the addition of sulfur at low temperature for several weeks. The wine was aged in barrels and cement tanks until the next year's harvest.
On the nose, expect ripe cherry with hints of meatiness and forest floor. The palate is full of ripe red fruits, cherries, raspberries, and wild bramble fruits. This wine is easy-drinking yet persistent on the finish with great structure and balance.
