From the importer:  Castro Ventosa was founded by the Perez family in 1752 and has never changed hands.. The Perez family owns 75 hectares of Mencía vineyards in Bierzo, making them the biggest owners of this varietal within the Bierzo D.O. The Bierzo appellation is made of 5,000 ha with 2,500 ha planted with white varietals, and 2,500 ha planted with Mencía. Raúl Pérez, who now runs the winery, is a figurehead for Bierzo wines in Spain. Castro Ventosa produces three different Mencías; Valtuille, El Castro de Valtuille and El Castro de Valtuille “Joven Mencia”. Mencía is indigenous from Bierzo and some suspect that it is an ancient clone from Cabernet Franc.

A lovely translucent red color with a floral, tannic finish and notes of wild berries and dusty rose petals.
