Product Description
Details

A varietal Mencía, Altos de Losada comes from El Bierzo, currently one of Spain's hottest wine regions.

Classified as "Vino de Pueblo" (Village wine) since 2018, this Spanish red wine of Bodegas Losada Vinos de Finca is crafted from old vines planted on clayey hills with different sun orientations. They are located near the village of Valtuille de Arriba, an area with a Continental climate.

After a careful harvest, each parcel was separately vinified in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Altos de Losada 2019 was aged for 15 months in concrete eggs, French oak vats and French oak barrels. This red wine from El Bierzo was gently clarified, but not filtered, before bottling

Aerate this Crianza red wine at least 30 minutes time before drinking.

Appearance

Nose

This varietal Mencía red wine conveys the unique character of the El Bierzo region. Pure aromas of wild 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 from Bodega Losada Vinos de Finca is juicy and textured, with remembrances of mulberries and bilberries, some spicy notes and an original metallic and bloody touch. Linear and focused, with crunchy tannins and a long, toasted finish with some cocoa remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A nicely crafted Mencía, Altos de Losada 2019 has an Atlantic character that we find delightful.
