Red Wine Godelia Tinto 2016
Availability: In stock
Produced in El Bierzo, this Spanish red wine is crafted from estate-owned and peasant-owned vineyards 40 to 80 years of age.
A varietal Mencía, Godelia Tinto is produced from partially terraced hills located at altitudes between 500 and 700 metres above sea level, whose soils have a high mineral content (slate and quartzite).
Each plot was separately harvest and, once in the cellar, cold-macerated, destemmed and vinified in stainless steel tanks for 18 to 22 days. After completing alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, Godelia Tinto 2016 was aged for 12 months in fine-grain French oak barrels.
Aerate this Crianza red wine from Bodegas y Viñedos Godelia some time before drinking.
The wine Godelia Tinto has a clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.
Deep and enticing, this varietal Mencía smells of ripe wild berries, with some creamy and balsamic nuances, aromas of toast and coffee, and an elegant mineral background.
Well-balanced, smooth and classy, this wine from Bodegas y Viñedos Godelia suggests some spicy and balsamic remembrances, a note of aniseed and fennel, and some dim smokey nuances. Tannins are still slightly rugged but acidity and texture are excellent. The long finish is elegantly dry, with a mineral and earthy note.
|Our personal opinion||
Due to its crisp acidity and solid structure, Godelia Tinto 2016 will pair excellently with hearty meat dishes.
