Only the grapes that are of the highest quality are selected to make LA MANO Mencía Roble. After destemming and pressing, the grapes are sent to stainless-steel tanks where maceration is carried out at 15ºC for 48 hours to obtain the maximum potential from the primary aromas.
The must obtained is then fermented with yeast, selected from the cellar at a constant temperature of 28ºC for 7 days, prolonging maceration 10 days more to obtain a better concentration of tannin and improve the structure of the final wine. After the final fermentation, the wine ages in American oak barrels for 3 months.
|Wine maker notes
|Deep crimson-colored, it delivers a fragrant perfume ofearth notes, black cherry and blueberry. Sweetly fruited, savoury and built for pleasure.
Layered on the palate, it has extraordinary depth and concentration for its humble price. It’s a little bit spicy and smooth-textured.
|Experience in their hands and passion in their hearts is the secret of LA MANO.

The introduction of the LA MANO can be found in 2004, when AXIAL VINOS created this delightful red wine from this winery.
The brand name LA MANO (aka the hand) has a double meaning. It can be associated with the hands and the thorough work of the people who have always worked with the Mencía gnarly bush vines. It can also be interpreted as a wine which is reachable for everybody. In other words; a wine that brings to the customers a piece of their passionate work, and of stunning value.
