Produced in El Bierzo, this Spanish red wine is crafted from estate-owned and peasant-owned vineyards 40 to 80 years of age.
A single varietal Mencía, Godelia 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. After completing alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, Godelia Tinto 2015 was aged for 12 months in fine-grain French oak barrels.
Drink this Mencía red wine by Bodegas y Viñedos Godelia over the next 6 years.
Aerate this Crianza red wine some time before drinking.
The wine Godelia has a clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.
Deep and enticing, this Mencía from El Bierzo 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 Mencía by Bodega 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||

Mencía wines are deep, fruity and a bit chewy. My pleasure!!
A little rustic, but sincere and enjoyable.
