ABOUT THE WINE: It is made in Valtuille de Abajo (León) with grapes from the 2.2-hectare plot Las Gundiñas, located at an altitude of 510 metres and with a density of 3800 plants per hectare.

Las Gundiñas is a wine made by César Márquez and Raúl Pérez, with the Mencía, Bastardo, Garnacha Tintorera and Doña Blanca grape varieties. It is fermented in large open vats with the whole stalk and a maceration time of between 30 and 60 days. It is aged for a year in used 225-litre French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES: It shows very fresh aromas of black fruit with certain notes of graphite and a background of thyme. In mouth it is fleshy, ample, with a tannin of grape very marked and certain earthy aftertaste.
