Monterrei

Tasting Note

A bright, deep red cherry colour wine. This is a very aromatic and complex Mencía with notes of ripe red fruits, as well as floral and spicy hints arising from its subtle ageing. It is especially round and smooth on the palate, with notes of red fruit and the freshness provided by the Galician Mencía variety. This is an elegant wine.

Food Pairing

Pazo de Monterrey Mencía pairs perfectly with red and white meats, rice dishes, cured and semi-cured cheeses, cold meat and mushrooms.
