A historic winery founded in 1879, making wines with old vines 50+ years old from dry-farmed vineyards. Guerra controls one-third of all the vineyard land in Bierzo (1,000 ha or 2,471 acres) and only makes wine with the best 10% of the grapes harvested.
Brilliant ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh dark berries, succulent herbs, licorice and peppery spices. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, blueberry and dark chocolate flavors that are sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity and a hint of white pepper. The blue fruit note lingers very nicely on the long, tangy finish, which is framed by dusty, fine-grained tannins. Notes by Josh Raynolds.
