Details

Made from old vines, Altos de Losada is a single varietal Mencía produced in the northern Spanish region of El Bierzo.

The vines are planted on clayey hills with different orientations. Climate is continental.

After a careful harvest, each of the plots was separately vinified following traditional methods.

After that, this Spanish red wine by Bodegas Losada Vinos de Finca  was aged for 15 months in French oak barrels. The wine was not filtered prior to its bottling

A wine with some room for growth, Altos de Losada 2016  will improve in the bottle for around  6 years.

Decant this red wine from El Bierzo 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Altos de Losada has an intense, clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This Mencía red wine conveys the authentic character of the El Bierzo region. Pure aromas of red berries, some wooden nuances, notes of toast, coffee and spices. A dash of blue flowers, some notions of balsam and fresh mineral undertones.

Palate

Fresh and ruggedly elegant, this red wine by Losada Vinos de Finca is juicy and fresh, with a smooth body, some well-balanced remembrances of spices and balsam, a peculiarly metallic and bloody touch, and a very fresh acidity. Linear and focused, with crunchy tannins and a long, toasted finish with some cocoa remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A well-crafted Mencía, Altos de Losada 2016 possesses an Atlantic character that we find delightful.
