Losada Vinos De Finca
Aiming to make elegant wine in Bierzo, Losada Vinos de Finca sought out old Bierzo vineyards traditionally planted on clay soils. Losada was established on the outskirts of the village of Pieros, on the St James pilgrimage route, midway between Cacabelos and Villafranca del Bierzo. The company also owns vineyard plots, planted mainly on clay soils round Valtuille de Arriba, where grapes for Altos de Losada are produced. The philosophy is to extract to maximum expression from the region’s terroir via the painstaking selection of estates and vineyards. Complexity and elegance are the grassroots of the Losada Vinos de Finca project.
Deep nose, but bright, perfumed and floral at the same time, showing intense and racy blueberries, golden berries, violets, lavender and an intriguing lift of white pepper. A medium-to full-bodied palate, filled with fine and fresh tannins. Dusty and velvety in texture. Really delicious now, but can hold, too.
