Tasting Notes

"Ripe black-fruit aromas are cuddly and reflect the warm conditions of 2012. Tight and ribbed on the palate, this has the structure to handle blackberry, chocolate and peppery spice flavors without seeming overripe or jammy. A saturated finish benefits from the right amount of acidity. Drink through 2023."
93 points - Wine Spectator, 4/1/2017

"Sexy nose of ripe black fruit, red flowers and mineral undertones. Hints of chocolate, too – not to mention toasted oak. Full body, soft tannins and fresh acidity that leads to a herbal and spicy finish. Pure mencía. Balanced. Drinkable now but better in 2018."
92 points - James Suckling, Dec 2016

The Producer

Godelia

Godelia was founded in 2009 by Carlos Gómez and María Jesús García in Bierzo, Spain. The winery is located in the village of Pieros, 550 meters above sea level, and covers an area of 26 hectares. The terroir is characterized by a mixture of slate and granite soils and a unique microclimate.

The winemaker at Godelia is Josep Serra, a well-known oenologist with more than 20 years of experience in the wine industry. Serra produces wines that reflect the terroir and the unique characteristics of each vintage.

The owner, Carlos Gómez, is a young entrepreneur with a passion for wine. He has been involved in the wine industry since he was a child, working in his family's winery in Ribera del Duero.

Godelia has received numerous awards for its wines, including the gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards for its Godelia Selección Tinto 2010. The winery has also been recognized by Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, which has given its wines high scores.
