D.O. Bierzo (Castilla y León)
Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is a red wine produced by Verónica Ortega in Valtuille de Abajo (León) D.O. Bierzo.
Verónica Ortega, natural from Cádiz and trained in the best wineries of Burgundy and Priorat, was attracted to the terroir of El Bierzo. She decided to settle in Valtuille de Abajo to start to produce her own wines, thus initiating her most personal project.
Verónica Ortega mainly works with old Mencía vineyards using organic precepts. Vinification is carried out traditionally, with spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts and low amounts of sulphites. Wines that are faithful to the terroir, with character and a great personality.
Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is a wine made from Mencía from the same vineyard as ROC Mencía, in the lowest area with deeper soils.
They are manually harvested and placed in 15-kg boxes. A classic vinification with whole grapes and 13 months of ageing in 800-litre terracotta amphorae.
Verónica Ortega VO Versión Original is an expressive, balanced and fresh wine. Very aromatic, fruity and very flowery. In the mouth it is fluid, with good amplitude and quite easy to drink. One of the most fascinating Mencía wines you can find.
