    Winemaker Notes

    This wine has a miniscule total production of 125 cases. Of all of his remarkable wines, this is perhaps Raúl Pérez's best value. Vico is a village wine from the Valtuille de Abajo subzone of Bierzo. Made from dry-farmed (no irrigation) old vines that are head pruned. As with all of Raúl's wines, the viticulture is organic. The wine is made utilizing 30% whole cluster maceration before, during and after fermentation for 60 days. This wine will age for 20 years.

    Whether it's roast chicken, broiled pork tenderloin, lamb or bison burgers, or cod in a tomato sauce similar to Basque Bacalao, Vico will really shine with dishes prepared with savory spices and wild herbs. The Mencía grape has a characteristic green-leaf quality, a minty-menthol edge that Spanish winemakers often describe as "balsamic." They mean nothing to do with Italian vinegar but rather to a wine's character of refreshing spices like anise or fennel.

    Blend: 100% Mencia

    Red Wine

    View all products

    Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

    Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
