Vinification
The grapes are whole-destemmed and crushed. The must ferments at 24 ºC - 29ºC temperature for 10 days with gentle pumping-over, followed by the maceration of 10 days. The pressed wine is discarded.

Ageing
The malolactic fermentation and the ageing take place in French 500L oak barrels (new oak and 1st year old barrel), the remaining wine ages in stainless steel tanks to preserve the crisp fruit of the Mencía and there are finally blended together at the end of the ageing.

Tasting notes
Licis 2015 shows finesse, freshness and appealing floral and fruity aromas like violets, lavender, raspberries and blackberries. Well-balanced, with velvety tannins and a delicate complexity that provides to the wine a great ageing potential.

Vintage 2015 reengages with a classical elegant style from Ribeira Sacra.
