Castro Ventosa

Mike Ritchie

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Funky farmyard aromas, fruit level subdued and flat. Overall – old-fashioned

Pedro Ballesteros

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Funky, barnyardy, lovely because of its wild character! Animal, meaty, very earthy, mineral. In palate is balanced and velvety despite its adorable rusticity. A unique wine for people looking for the difference. Gorgeous finish.

Sarah Jane Evans

Tasting: Bierzo Mencia

Farmyardy, funky aromas. Tight acidity, leafy green palate undernotes of red fruits. Long, drying finish.
