100% Mencía, organic farming. Macerated and fermented with native yeasts, in contact with the skin of the grape at 25 ºC for 15-20 days in stainless steel tank, thus obtaining a rich and fruity red wine.
Cherry red wine with bright violet hues. The nose evokes delicate raspberries and blackberries with light notes of violet, licorice and toffee caramel. Light bodied, fruity and easy to drink, well balanced with a fresh entry, floral and fruity notes and soft tannins providing a persistent finish. If you are not familiar with Mencia grape variety, it has the body of Burgundy pinot noir and the flavors of a Northern Rhone Syrah.
Built in an old 17th century rectory and surrounded by 20 hectares of vineyards, the winery is located in Amandi, the founder's hometown in the heart of the Ribeira Sacra (in the Northwest of Galicia, Spain). This is one of 4 areas in Spain certifed as “heroic viticulture” due to the steep slopes and its ground placed in terraces that make almost impossible to cultivate and harvest the grapes.
