It is the reference with more production of the winery. It is made with almost 100% Mencía destemmed, but not crushed and fermented after a short pre-fermentative cold maceration. Cherry red and medium layer is a limpid and bright wine. On the nose, once the reductive notes typical of the variety disappear, there is an explosion of red fruit (raspberry, cherry ...) and black berries (mora), which together with the combined lactic notes remind us of trinkets (strawberry lollipops). Very present mineral notes (graphite). The attack on the palate is fresh, but as it runs through the mouth we find an enveloping, sweet wine that reflects the good relationship between alcohol and glycerin.
