*Other information: Mencía is a very sensitive grape variety and stands out its cultivation preferably in mountain areas. Its maturation has much to do with the orientation to the Sun and with the altitude in which the vineyards are located. It produces wines with intense raspberry color, intense fruit aromas, but also delicate flowers, good alcoholic doses, good acidity and excellent aged possibilities. We seek to bring to life all its power and the expressiveness of the terroir, where the substrate marks the minerality of the wine, highlighting the different expressions and concentrations of the fruit.
