Bierzo DO - Esencial Tinto Crianza 2015 (75 cl)
Order Esencial Tinto 2015 (75 cl)
The wine has an intense dark purple color. In the nose you can understand the aromas of wild berries and ripe, dark cherries. On the palate it convinces with the distinctive fine roasted aromas and its soft tannins. It looks elegant and unobtrusive. Due to its suppleness, it is the counterpart to the full, intense Ribera del Duero wines. You will be amazed by the typical Mencía flavors and love this wine.

Information about the producer
Roland and Raquel Barmet-Garcia, hosts at the BOLERO, have a family finca (4.5 hectares of vines) in Villafranca del Bierzo, Leon (right on the Way of St. James). Since there is no time to take care of the vines and to make wine, the farm became Castro Bergidum Arroyo family leased from neighboring Pieros. This family makes this unique wine. The Arroyo family themselves have 15 hectares of vines and produce just 80,000 bottles a year.
