D Ventura Vina do Burato Ribeira Sacra 2012


A by the glass purchase.  Since my encounter with this Palacios wine from Bierzo (see here), I have taken the charms of mencia more seriously.  Ribeira Sacra is its own appellation and specialises in reds, and mencia in particular.  Bierzo and Ribeira Sacra are neighbouring regions in Galicia in the wet north western part of Spain.  The "Vina do Burato" is D Ventura's entry level wine, but it is still tasty.  Aromas of red berries and earth.  Good length on the palate in a balanced, medium bodied style with chirpy acidity.  Enjoyable drinking.   (Region: Ribeira Sacra, Galicia, Spain, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now, Tasted: July, 2017)
