From the Producer

Azos de Vila comes from the village of Manzaneda, where there are very old mixed plantings of 80-120 years, with the oldest vines planted on their own rootstock. This cuvée is a field blend of Mouraton, Mencía, Garnacha Tintorera, Merenzao, Gran Negro, etc. The grapes were destemmed and fermentated with wild yeasts in old, open-top French oak barrels, then raised for 11 months in a mix of used 225 and 500 liter barrels. This is a fresh yet complex vino tinto, with a rustic streak that begs to be paired with wild game and fatty pork dishes, like you would find on the River Sil in Galicia.
