Description

Why to buy: Without a doubt, you will fall in love with these wines made from a grape you may never have heard of: Mencía. With its trademark exotic fruit flavor and similarity to Pinot Noir and Barbera, Mencía is as flexible and food-friendly as a grape gets. This collection of two Spanish greats reveals a producer showcasing it at its best—beloved by critics and our wine team at Gilt Taste, these are truly excellent additions to the dinner table.

Characteristics: Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar awarded the Villa de Corullón 2010 92 points for its “pungent, youthful aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry-cola and candied violet with a mineral topnote… silky tannins give shape and grip to a long, penetrating finish.” Wine Spectator was a fan of the Pétalos del Bierzo 2010, giving it 91 points for its “black cherry, licorice, mineral and smoke flavors… supported by well-integrated tannins and firm acidity.” Both are flexible enough to be welcome at a feast; they pair with almost anything on the holiday table.

Varietals: 100% Mencía

Appellation: Bierzos
