Characteristics of Lombano

Lombano is a reserva red wine made with the Mencía variety in the D.O. Bierzo (Castilla y León) by the Akilia winery.

The winery’s vineyards lie at the foot of Mount Aquilianos, a mountain whose name was inspired by the large number of eagles that flew over when the Romans arrived in Bierzo. Akilia Wines is Mario Rovira’s personal project. With a total area of 4 hectares of old vineyards planted with native varieties, they make limited production wines that are the pure reflection of the environment where they come from.

Lombano is made from old vines that are 60 years old. They come from a 0.5 hectare plot with sandy soils and lying on a steep slope at an altitude of 650 metres. They practice traditional agriculture without using herbicides or systematics and the yield is limited to 25 hl/ha. Finally the grapes are harvested manually in boxes before the grapes become overripe.

In the winery, Lombano ferments in concrete tanks with a controlled temperature. Once fermentation is complete, it spends 9 more months aging in the same tanks.

Lombano is a wine that shows the freshness and character of the terroir that is making wines from the D.O. Bierzo so popular. An introduction to this young winery that champions authenticity in the vineyard and winery.

Tasting notes Lombano

Lombano 2011 is a smooth red wine with aromas of red berries, spicy notes and hints of leather. On the palate it is smooth with round tannins and a subtle acidity. The finish is long and with a very pleasant aromatic retronasal.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Akilia

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.
