Tasting Note:

La Vitoriana is a wonderful vineyard located at 600m altitude facing north in Valtuille. Remarkably, the vines date back to 1881 and are still planted on original Pie Franco rootstocks thanks to the higher proportion of sand in the upper section of the vineyard. Clear, sweet red and black fruit cloaks the palate with white, rocky spices and dustings of coffee bean, black plum and bitter chocolate. A fresh vineyard combined with magical, old vine material produces a brilliantly complete Bierzo. Fermented in large wooden vats on the skins for up to 90 days before maturation in 500L casks and 225L barrique.
