This fantastic 60-100 year old 1ha north-facing single plot of 90% Mencía and 10% Palomino on red slate in Alto de Valdecañada is one of the gems of the vineyard and the first plot Michelini and Mufatto bought in Bierzo. The previous owner had abandoned the field, which has now been revived and is cultivated according to ecological and biodynamic principles. Vinified by treading whole bunches followed by fermentation and maceration for over 2 months in clay amphorae before aging for 12 months in used Bourgogne casks. World-class aromatics, it shows a mind-blowingly beautiful nose with herbs, cocktail berries, cherries, pepper, flowers, lemon peel and rusty earth tones giving it associations with old school Syrah from the Northern Rhône. 

The taste is equally beautiful. Dry, floating, fresh and driven by the slate's energetic high-hat rhythm, the delicate, dark and pure fruit allowed to express all its finesse on the tongue in a balance with great freshness and a slightly raw, tannic punch. Almost as stony as it is fruity, this wild elixir is bracingly structured in 2020 and very youthful. Unfortunately only a microscopic amount produced.
