Castrofiz Mencía 2021

VENCELLO the result from the synergy between the wineries Os Cipreses and Castrofiz with respect to the land, the vineyards and the traditional methods of the people of the Ribeira Sacra of the Miño River, who with their work and sacrifice motivate us to continue to work so that the vineyards are not left without generational replacement. We are hoping for symbiosis and that this motivation will give an impulse to the small wineries so as not to lose the spirit left to us by our ancestors.

Clean and fresh, with medium to high intensity, cherry red color with a very bright bluish rim. Long teardrop (very glyceric).

Medium intensity, reminiscent of stalking (rockrose, arbutus undergrowth, leather). Well-structured, very fresh with aromatic hints of the forest, very ripe fruit aromas (cherry, plum, blackberry) very subtle and persistent.

The palate has an intense structure with a very long sweet tannin, fleshy, ripe and with a very pleasant astringency, with a long persistence and an intense aftertaste.
