Mostly Mencía with Bastardo (Trousseau), Garnacha Tintorera (Alicante Bouschet) and Doña Blanca. Harvested at the end of August / beginning of September. Whole-cluster fermentation in open-top 700-liter barrel. 40-60 day maceration followed by aging in 228-liter barrique for 16 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.

\WA 93 PointsI found very ripe aromas in the 2020 Ultreia Cova de la Raposa and notes of ink and licorice and a touch of cured meat and smoke. This is very round and lush, from a warm zone with sandy soils, south-facing and with a tendency to ripen early. It's creamy and spherical. There was only one 500-liter oak barrel of this, so some 600 bottles. This was not produced in 2019.”
