Akilia Villa San Lorenzo 2016
Front and back

Review:

The Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo is produced using grapes from two vineyards, Fontairo and Villarín, cultivated on clay soil hillsides rich in slate and quartzite. The goblet-trained vines are over 80 years old.

Observing a glass of Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo, we see a delicate wine with a fragile ruby colour. Dairy aromas combine with those of red forest fruits, blue flowers, and spices such as pepper or cloves. Its legs and brightness indicate a lively, wide wine which is just how it tastes on the palate, fulsome and wide in flavour but flowing elegantly without becoming heavy. It has aromas of wild cherries, plums, bush scrub, unripe strawberry tree berries, and slate dust. The concrete tanks used during vinification and ageing of the must from the Fontairo (2.5 hectares) plot keeps the fruit intact and provides a touch of austerity to the wine. The grape must from the Villarín (1 hectare) plot is aged in oak barrels, and acquires aromas of liquorice and slightly rough tannins. The careful blending of the two results makes Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo a complex and versatile, yet delicate, red wine.
