The wine is primarily produced in the winery using almost 100% Mencía grapes. The grapes undergo destemming and fermentation after a short pre-fermentative cold maceration. The wine has a cherry red color with a medium layer and is very clean and bright. On the nose, after the reductive notes typical of the variety fade away, there is an explosion of red fruit such as raspberry, cherry, and blackberries, along with combined lactic notes that remind us of strawberry lollipops. There are also mineral notes that resemble graphite. The wine has a fresh initial taste, but as it goes through the mouth, it becomes warm and enveloping, reflecting the excellent balance of acidity and glycerin.
