D. Ventura Viña Caneiro 2012

Viña Caneiro

D Ventura‚Äôs top wine, from stunningly steep south-facing vineyards right on the Sil river. These are old vines on slate soils, producing a wine that shows the Mencía grape at its deepest and most complex.

Vinification Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel and aged on the lees for 9 months.

Tasting Notes Stony fruit with a crème de cassis undertone. Very sweet fruit with pronounced mineral elements framed by solid tannins.
