Characteristics of Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo

Akilia de San Lorenzo is a red wine from the D.O. Bierzo produced by the Akilia winery. This is a single variety wine made with Mencía grapes that come from three different plots.

The grapes used to make this wine come from the estates Chano Villar, Lombano and Villarín. The first, which spans across two hectares, is situated on mild lopes facing east and grows on clay loam and slate soils. The second spans just over half a hectare, on a steep gradient and facing west. The third plot, that occupies one hectare, has an east facing orientation on mild slopes and grows on clay loam soils with quartzite and slate.

The various vineyards have an average age of 80 years and are cultivated using traditional goblet trained vines. The harvest is carried out manually, with small boxes being used, ensuring that the bunches and grapes do on break or rupture. The vinification process for each plot is carried out independently in concrete tanks. The grapes from Chano Villar and Villarín are left to rest for 9 months in concrete tanks, while the most from Lombano ages for one year in French oak barrels.

Akilia is a young winery from Bierzo which works wonders with the Mencía grape variety, an opinion shared by renowned wine critic Robert Parker, perhaps one of the most influential wine critics in the world.

Tasting notes Akilia Villa de San Lorenzo

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.

D.O. D.O. Bierzo

Winery Akilia

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".
