Mencos 2012

Mencos

Mencos comes from a beautiful parcel of vines aging an average 35 years on the south side of the Ebro River in the village of Torremontalvo. This vineyard, with chalky clay over gravel, is well suited to the tempranillo grape.

Vinification The wine is fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and then bottled without further aging.

Tasting Notes Ripe and round on the palate the wine explodes with aromas and flavors typical of this region. Flowers and violets capture the essential elements.
