Bierzo petals It is an elegant, intense and exquisitely perfumed wine that perfectly reflects all the nuances of the grape. mencia and the region of bierzo , also known as the Spanish Burgundy : old vines grown on steep and rocky slate lands from which the best of Mencía is extracted.
Intense dark cherry red color, high robe. Abundant tears that stain the cup. On the nose, very good aromatic intensity, with good, slightly marked toasted notes and light fruity notes. Aerating it, the ripe black fruit gains a lot of intensity, becoming the protagonist together with dairy, subtle floral touches and some pleasant balsamic aromas. In the mouth good entry. Fresh, very tasty, sweet and intense, with a silky mid palate. Good tannins still to finish polishing and correct acidity. Long finish with fruity aftertaste.
