Diego Losada Bierzo Tinto 'Vindemiatrix' 2018
Diego Losada, a former organic chemistry student, took to the vine and pursued a non-interventionist mentality towards farming. He cultivates 5 hectares of bush vines in the heart of Galicia. ‘Vindemiatrix’ is a Mencia dominant blend, destemmed and vinified in concrete. Fresh, earthy, and noted with flavors of smoke and spice; serve slightly chilled with grilled meats or veggies!
One of the 'big three' European wine giants along with France and Italy, but perhaps the one with the most untapped potential, with many ascendant regions and producers just now finding an audience.
