Product Description
Details

The red wine Valeyo is the debut release in the DO Bierzo of Bodegas Mauro, the wine project of the prestigious oenologist Mariano García.

This single vineyard Spanish red wine is made from Mencía and a 5% Godello, sourced from a 3-hectare biodynamically farmed plot planted at 650 metres above sea level, near the village of Valtuille de Arriba

The grapes were vinified in concrete diposits with native yeasts. This red wine from El Bierzo was then transferred into new and used 500-litre French oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months. The red wine Valeyo 2021 was bottled in December 2022.

After that, this Crianza red wine was kept in the cellar for 12 months minimum before being released onto the market.

11,866 bottles produced.

Nose

The aromatic finesse is the defining trait of this red wine made from Mencía and Godello. Sour red berries, fine leather, violets and dried lavender, with a intimations of mountain herbs, the trademark Bierzo minerality and a suggestion of spices.

Palate

The wine has the understated elegance that characterizes the cool vintages, enhanced by an excellent definition and a pitch-perfect acidity. This red wine of Bodegas Mauro is transparent, terroir-driven and velvety, with slim tannins and a long finish reminiscent of black pepper, sour herbs, crushed rocks and spices.

Our personal opinion

An outstanding debut vintage, the wine Valeyo 2021 highlights the talent of winemaker Mariano García.
