Raúl Pérez makes this wine at the Pérez’s family winery, Bodegas y Viñedos Castro Ventosa, situated in the village of Valtuille de Abajo, at the foot of the slope of the Castro. Founded by the Pérez family in 1752 the winery has since then remained in the hands of the family, 75 hectares of vineyards in Bierzo, planted with the indigenous red variety Mencía. To elaborate Castro de Valtuille, Raúl Pérez brings out the most from the oldest vines from two vineyards, most of them centenary vines, which are growing on steep slopes with slatey soils at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level.
The fruits for this wine are harvested by hand and sorted at the vineyard. Half of it fermented whole cluster in oak vat and afterwards aged for 1 year in barriques.
Tasting notes: Full flavoured, liquorice, plums, blackcurrants and cherries coming through, soft and silky with hints of oak, balsamic and spices, very fine tannins with a good aftertaste.
