Overview

Villa de San Lorenzo is Mario Rovira’s village wine made from Mencia sourced from Fontairo supplemented with  a varying selection of declassified wines from his single vineyards: Chano Villar, Lombano and Villarín. Made from a combination of east- and west-facing vineyards at a high elevation it is a pure and elegantly-styled Mencia of precision, delicate red fruit flavors and a fresh minerality.
