Pago de Valdoneje - Vinos Valtuille

The 2014 Pago Valdoneje Tinto Roble is a 100% Mencía 80 years old from a clay soils in Valtuille de Abajo. Fermentation in stainless steel vats and spending 4 months in French oak with two wines. It has a fruity and peppery nose that is very Atlantic with powerful aromas wafting around a core of ripe plums alongside earthy hints with toasted and spicy flavors. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with very good intensity and bright, spicy flavors with very refined tannins.

Tasting Notes

Intensive Red color with violets hints.
On the nose it is extremely fresh. Barnyard and smoke driven nose. Black and red fruits such as plums and blackberries; very earthy and mineral coming from the Bierzo soils such as roasted notes, smoke, black peper and licorice, some hints of balsamic aromas, mint mainly, are also present.
The wine is firmly structured on the palate, with incredible depth and a persistent fruit-driven finish. Perfect balance with very fine tannins. This wine is unfined and unfiltered.
