"Alluring, intense, ethereal. This red shows elegance and harmony... Its concentrated, yet refreshing. A beautifully crafted wine with distinctive character."
A seventh wine originally intended for 'Bembibre' proved so outstanding it was aged and bottled on its own. Ungrafted centenarian hillside vines, selection and aging regimen as for 'Bembibre', but with an intensity of terroir/minerality that simply refuses to marry with the oak, screaming its iodine/black fruit presence at full force.
Dominio de Tares was formed in 2000 by an enthusiastic group of local investors, leading a quality resurgence following years of neglect in the area. Given Bierzo’s ideal, fresh/mineral terroir and the old Mencía vines, quality at the highest level was an immediate possibility. Amancio Fernández, Bierzo native and one of Spain’s brightest young enologists, brought intimate knowledge of local viticulture to bear, working from the start with the area’s most serious growers in order to obtain the very best fruit.
