The magnificent wine from Marcos García and his family. A ‘vino de pago’, an estate wine from the Pago de Valdoneje, which shows the maturity of the old vines and the winery’s own individual style, offering a profile that’s also a little more rustic and austere than the others, with some rough tannins, which will appreciate time in bottle. In short, a truly great wine which invites calm reflection, enjoying one sip after another.
