Red wine from the vineyard “La Bienquerida”(Mencía and other varieties)
La Bienquerida is a small vineyard of mencía and other varieties little known. In the past the vineyard most desired by the locals, for the strong personality of their wines. Almost about to disappear, today it has been recovered by Losada Vinos de Finca. It shows the combination between a singular vineyard, the variety and the man.
Aged 15 months in French oak barrels 40% new and 60% in second year.
Red-cherry red, very well covered. Intense nose, fruity, aromas of black and red fruit jam, floral touch, balsamic, notes of bitter chocolate, lactic touch, toffee. Tasty in the mouth, well constituted, with body and breadth, balanced, lively acidity, with juiciness in the passage. Fine woods well integrated.
Persistent finish with aromas of chocolate and fruit in liquor.
The winery is situated in Cacabelos on the road to Villafranca del Bierzo. This location, in the centre of a triangle formed by Cacabelos, Villafranca and Toral de los Vados, allows the best possible access to the production zone of most of the quality grapes produced in Bierzo.
Aiming to make an elegant new wave Bierzo wine, Losada Vinos de Finca boldly sought out old Bierzo vineyards traditionally planted on clay soils, a terroir which had been relatively overlooked by the Bierzo’s new wave.
As a result, Losada was established on the outskirts of the village of Pieros, on the St James pilgrimage route, midway between Cacabelos and Villafranca del Bierzo.
The company also owns vineyard plots mainly planted on clay soils around Valtuille de Arriba, where grapes for their flag wine Altos de Losada are produced.
