Review

Clusters of grapes can be separated into two parts: the shoulders and the tips. The latter are formed on the lower halves of the clusters, where the freshest grapes are concentrated. On the shoulders, the upper part, are the riper grapes which produce this magnificent Mencía red. Succulent fruit and a mineral character are its distinctive traits.

Fantastic wine and fantastic offer

That boy who, back in the 1940s, was entrusted with cleaning the clay vats as he was the only one who fit through the narrow mouths, decided in 1989 to make his dream come true and began to acquire old vineyards in El Bierzo.
