Tasting notes El Castro de Valtuille Mencía Joven

Sight Intense purple. Clean and bright. Nose Intense aromas of black fruit accompanied by spicy and herbal notes. Taste Embracing and juicy on the palate. Velvety and unctuous leaving juicy black fruit sensations. Good acidity. Long finish.
Sight Intense dark violet. Nose A powerful and generous nose. Dark fruits and some black olives, enclosed by an gamey, red meat aroma. Taste Tantalising, compact and engulfing on the palate. Mellow and round, without coarse tannins or green aristas.
Sight Nice, intense and bright cherry red colour with maroon edges and glyceric tears. Nose Powerful, fresh, intense and complex aromas. Its abundant notes of black fruit (green at the beginning although they get increasingly ripe) are released along with lots of floral and spicy notes. Some hints of coffee, smoked notes, fresh balsamic touches and light hints of black olives and pepper are also felt.
Taste Wide and bulky wine, which coats the mouth with fruity and smoky notes, full of nuances. It has a tasty, soft and silky mid palate and a correct acidity that provides it with a nice freshness. Good finish with a good persistence. A very sweet and very tasty wine. Round and embracing.
Sight Bright, deep violet wine, whose legs dye the glass.
Nose Powerful aromas. Start with a touch of reduction. Once opened, it is an immense wine, with lots of black fruit scents and black olive notes with animal and mineral hints.
Taste Sweet and complex in the mouth. Soft and velvety texture, with well integrated tannins. A rounded wine.
Sight Deep violet. Nose The nose is generous and powerful. It offers a range of black fruit and black olives. Taste In the mouth it has a sweet tooth, touch is soft and round.

Reviews

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Castro Ventosa

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
