Baltos is a red wine with Denomination of Origin Bierzo, made from 100% Mencía from over 40 year old vineyards .
The vineyards are located in the area of Cabanales, in Valtuille de Abajo. This area is characterized by gentle south-facing slopes, with an altitude of 500 meters above sea level.
The harvest is done by hand in different vineyards which provide different characteristics to this excellent red wine. The vineyard of Cabanales offers structured wines and a powerful aroma. Valtuille brings elegance and finesse. Last and not least, Almázcara brings the tannic and polyphenolic load to crown this delicious drop.
Baltos remains in French and American oak barrels for 4 to 7 months.
It offers an intense cherry red color with violet reflections.
In the nose, it highlights its fruity aroma, spicy nuances and roasted notes that justify its passage through the barrel.
In the mouth, its fruity character and leather notes are appreciated.
A service at 16º C in Burgundy glass is recommended.
