Characteristics of Álvarez de Toledo Roble

Álvarez de Toledo Roble is a monovarietal Mencía red 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 vineyards of Álvarez de Toledo Oak are located in the area around Villafranca del Bierzo at an altitude of between 420 and 500 metres above sea level, and are between 40 and 60 years old. The bunches are destemmed and squeezed gently, and the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks with temperature control to ensure optimum fermentation. Vatting lasts 12 days, during which pumping over is performed to aid the extraction of tannins and colour. Lastly it is aged in French and American oak barrels for 10 months.

Álvarez de Toledo Roble is a wine with a fresh, fruity, spicy and herbaceous character; typical of Mencía and Bierzo.

Tasting notes Álvarez de Toledo Roble

Álvarez de Toledo Roble 2015 has aromas of fruit, mineral and wet earth: characteristic aromas of the land of the vineyards and variety of grapes used to make the wine. On the palate it is silky, fruity and persistent.
The 2014 vintage was characterised by a marked Atlantic climate. The rains and the cold in autumn prevailed, leading to a somewhat warmer than usual winter. Spring started mildly, with a two-week delay in budding and the rains were sporadic, with a total water accumulation of 1,000 mm that gives the vintage its Atlantic character. In July and August, temperatures rose and rainfall was scarce, leaving the grapes to ripen in an excellent way and giving the vintage a little more structure. At the end of August, they suffered high temperatures, and in September, the traditional rains made the harvest quite difficult. The wines of this vintage are characterised by their great complexity. A wine with an Atlantic and fresh character and a structure provided by the warmer end of cycle. Wines with a long life ahead.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.
