Ladredo, Ribeira Sacra

57.95

Ladredo is the name of a little old vineyard, aged about 50 years, facing east and perched precipitously over the River Sil. It has such a steep slope that the grape harvest is a near Herculean task. This vineyard has two co-existing varieties: Mencía (called Jaen in Portugal) and Alicante Bouschet.

Slightly open in the ruby color, Ladredo 2012 shows lots of fresh fruit, is very expressive and aromatic. Markedly spicy aroma, dominated by the notes of pepper and tobacco leaves from the Mencía variety, with a very fine and delicate set.

It is vibrant and strong in the mouth, with very silky tannins, together with a remarkable structure with depth, reflecting the minerality of the schist terroir. Finish full of energy, where the fantastic acidity gives a very long and persistent finish. Great aging potential.
