Description

Ninety years ago, vines grew up the hillsides of Valtuille de Abajo and dreams matured just as the bunches of grapes did every September at the foot of the Castro de la Ventosa. The Peique family story began in this little village of fewer than 200 people, located in the Bierzo area of León, where anecdotes about wine were a
constant feature in every household and shaped the soul of this family. It is hardly surprising that the village
has such a close relationship with the vines, as it is said that in this environment of sandy and clayey soils, seat of the ancient Bergidum Flavium, a pre-Roman town that lends its name to El Bierzo. Grapes mature under ideal conditions. It was 1999 when three generations of the Peique family got together in an entrepreneurial adventure. They developed a winery in the village where they were born and grew
among vineyards and barrels.

TASTING NOTES

Very ripe black cherry coloured. Scented with red and black fruit, spices, toasty with an earthy and balsamic background. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, lingers on the palate with pleasant silky fruity notes.

FOOD PAIRING
This wine pairs wonderfully with dark chocolate desserts as well as semi-cured and cured cheeses like Cheddar and Manchego.
