Description

Alvarez de Toledo Mencia Roble 2013

This bottle of Mencia Roble from Alvarez de Toledo stands out because of its marked fruity character which brings out all the qualities and characteristics of the Mencia variety. Its time in the barrel accentuates these qualities by providing subtlety, elegance and complexity. On the nose, there are presences of notes of black cherries, prune and oak. In mouth is silky, fruity, with persistence and great kindness.

Vineyards are located in the most traditional area for production in El Bierzo at an altitude of between 420 and 500m. The bunches are destemmed and squeezed gently, then they are fermented in stainless steel tanks with temperature control. The fermentation process lasts 12 days, during which pumpings over are made to facilitate the extraction of tannins and color.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

90 pts

Ripe plum and violet aromas carry a slight note of prune. A beefy palate shows hard tannins but nothing too tough that food can’t tame. Blackened, roasted blackberry and blueberry flavors finish with charred, meaty intensity. Drink through 2020.
