The wine

La Tellería is a vino de paraje a wine from a particular place in the Bierzo, ideal for those looking for an affordable Mencía wine and offering a good price-quality ratio. In comparison with the bodega’s other wines, it’s lighter on the palate and, although with plenty of body, volume and lots of fruit, it’s very fresh and easy to drink.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Suckling

The 2022 La Tellería was selected from a paraje opposite Villegas on clay soils in Valtuille de Abajo, and the wine shows a moderate 13.5% alcohol on the label despite the very dry and warm year. It's medium-bodied with fine tannins and a clean and tasty finish. This fermented destemmed in stainless steel and matured in a 10,000 liter oak foudre for four to five months.11,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2023.

— Luis Gutiérrez (10/08/2023)Robert Parker Wine Advocate Vintage 2022 - 92 PARKER

Plum, crushed-pepper and spice aromas follow through to a medium body with round, medium-chewy tannins that spread across the palate. Savory and flavorful. Drink now.
