Characteristics of Álvarez de Toledo Colección de Familia 2015

Álvarez de Toledo Colección de Familia is a monovarietal Mencíared wine from the D.O. Bierzo produced by Bodegas Álvarez de Toledo.

The origins of the Álvarez de Toledo family and their relationship with wine go back to the 15th century. Their wines are currently made in the facilities of the Vinos de Arganza winery until the completion of the construction of their own winery, which will be located alongside the Camino de Santiago.

The grapes for Álvarez de Toledo Colección de Familia come from vineyards near Villafranca del Bierzo and Valtuille de Arriba and are located between 400 and 500 metres above sea level. They are between 60 and 80 years old and planted on slate soils. The old vineyards produce a more concentrated and balanced grape than the young ones. The continental climate with an Atlantic influence predominates in the area.

Álvarez de Toledo Family Collection is harvested manually into 20 kg boxes. It is then vinified in open barrels, performing a gentle treading of the grapes to break the skins and extract the juice from the berries, and allowing the fermentation to begin spontaneously. When the fermentation has ended, it is aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.

Álvarez de Toledo Colección de Familia is a wine with a fresh, fruity, spicy and herbaceous character, with earthy touches. This is a wine that can be a good example of what the Bierzo Mencías grown on slate soils can offer us.
