The family dreamer.
A young thirty-something Mencía, with a youthful spirit, carefree, and fun.
A good way to discover Mencía is through this young and easy to drink red wine, characteristics that also make it the ideal choice for light conversation. Assemblage of Mencía grapes from our youngest vines from plots of land with their own orientations, exposures, and microclimates. In the glass, it presents a pure and young version of Mencía. A single variety wine destined to represent the authenticity of El Bierzo.

Royal Ann cherry red with medium robe and a purplish edge. Intense nose with aromas of fresh wild fruit along with floral and undergrowth aromas, with a slight mineral hue. In the mouth it is tasty, fresh, and elegant, slightly marked by soft tannins and with a long and persistent finish.
Consume between 14-16°C. We like to share it at a barbecue, with cecina del Bierzo (El Bierzo jerky) or simply by the glass.
