Review

Benjamín Romeo is particularly well-known for his great Contador, but all his wines are a wonderful reflection of quality grapes, extremely well-cared for (Benjamín is the vine grower), thoroughly likeable wines from start to finish.

A Mi Manera is his carbonic maceration red, a wine flawless in the making, using the best grapes, full of fruit aromas, intense and juicy, elegant... a wine to fall in love with. It has a lovely colour, as though there were rose petals floating in the glass, lively, an intense cherry colour with a carmine rim.

It is fruit poured into a glass - chewy, juicy fruit, but with a balance that is exceedingly fine; intense, dense but velvety, attractive, a wine where complexity is not sought after, but offering the most genuine fruit expression. A wine which, even though it is young, we shouldn't expect to be simple; exactly the opposite, this wine is complete, with some shy lactic notes found in the aftertaste. It is simply Benjamín ‘in his own way’, and what a way that is!

(A Mi Manera is made with grapes originating from vine-stock planted in parcels with poor soils, mainly calcareous clay, and vinified in large truncated conical vats, with a 10,000 litre capacity.)

Excelente vino muy recomendable

Vino joven, con todo el sabor a fruta fresca pero suave y sedoso, una maravilla que debes probar sin duda alguna. Todo un descubrimiento para mi.

Muy bueno, pero otras añadas mejor

Esperaba ansioso que sacaran este año 2018 puesto q el pasado 2017 nos quedamos sin él. Tengo mejor recuerdo de añadas anteriores.

Excelso

Será difícil encontrar vinos jóvenes a la altura de A mi manera. Fruta pura, color expléndido, sabor excelso. Para los enamorados de los vinos jóvenes, disfrutaréis a lo lindo.

Rico y muy jugoso

La primera vez que tuve la oportunidad de comprar este vino pensé que quizá era demasiado caro para ser un vino joven. Pero al probarlo dejas de pensarlo. Se nota que hay buen materia prima, y mucha, la masticas, casi. Lo probamos con unos amigos en otoño, comentando los vinos franceses que acababan de salir al mercado y que no nos convencían para nada, demasiado delgados, poco pulidos... y nos reímos: pones el vino de Benjamín al lado de estos y... el día y la noche. ¡Esto sí que es un vino! Además, las etiquetas son siempre originales. Me gusta mucho y pago su precio sin problemas.
