This is a natural, unfiltered wine that although produced within the DO Bierzo region, falls out of the rules of production, so it ends up with the IGT clssification. Dried flowers, blueberries, and smokey vanilla on the nose, continued floral aspects on the palate as well as fresh cherries and moist earth. Quite nice, more minerality than I expected and smooth as silk tannins. Medium finish. Price/quality relation is amazing, €15 the whole bottle at the bar in Madrid

This was great. Style held up well to (Vintage meathook!) steak and was a good value on the restaurant wine list. Tannins worked well with steak but we’re more robust than I expected. Improved with some air.

Wow....natural wine at its finest. Meat fat/charcuterie nose with blueberry and dark fruit. Little smoke. Palette confirms the nose. Well incorporated tannins.

earthy, red fruits, nice weight for drinking on a cool summer night. high tannins— needs time to mellow.
