Valtuille Cepas Centenarias
Bodegas Castro Ventosa
Dry Red. 100% Mencía.
Dark cherry colour with maroon edges. A wine with a high robe and abundant tears.
It has that extra dimension aromatically imparted by the old vines. Aromas of black raspberry, cherry, spice box, and incense leap from the glass.
Not quite as impressive on the palate but irst class nevertheless, the wine is dense, ripe, sweet, and very lengthy. It will continue to unfold for another 4-6 years.
16 months in French oak barrel.
Stews, grilled red meats, stews, game stew, roasts, sheeps cheese.
16ºC - 18ºC
