This 100% Mencia wine offers remarkable complexity and olfactory depth, featuring rich mineral and phosphoric notes, along with spices and aromatic herbs. On the palate, it is ripe, expressive, and pompous, culminating in a powerful finish with an aromatic aftertaste. Ideal for aging, it promises excellent evolution over time. The wine is aged for 8 to 22 months in French oak barrels, and the vineyards, situated on calcareous clay sand soils, are around 100 years old. This creates a wine with great potential for laying down and enjoying its progression over the years.
