Vehemencia Crianza Organic Mencia Bierzo

00140214

Mencia’s characteristic large diversity of fruits and toast notes are in this case followed and enhanced by a layer of flavours contributed by the ageing in oak casks. Mencia is the red grape traditionally grown in the mountains of El Bierzo, Leon region in Northwest Spain. Although it is only ninth on the list of mostly produced red varieties in Spain, mencia has over time become an emblematic Spanish red wine.
