Altos de Losada Reserva, Bierzo

Altos de Losada Reserva, Bierzo

The flagship wine produced from 21 small estate parcels, some no more than half a hectare, located on steep hillsides near the villages of upper Valtuille and Pieros, close to the winery. Each vineyard is planted on predominantly clay soils, as Losada believe clay soils give the finest interpretation of the Mencía grape. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine spends 15 months in French oak barrels; it is bottled unfiltered. It shows great complexity and is the wine that best represents Losada’s vision for Bierzo and Mencía: elegant, juicy with ripe black and red fruits and a smoky minerality and supple tannins.
