Casa Américo, Jaen, 2016

This 100% Jaen wine from Casa Américo Jaen comes from a 50-year-old vineyard in Vila Nova de Tazem, in the Dão region, sub-region of Serra da Estrela, Portugal. The Jaen variety, traditional from Dão, was once predominant, then fell into disgrace and was abandoned, uprooted, but today it has regained its space in Dão.
Without aging in wood, this wine aims to highlight the unique characteristics of the variety, its elegance and freshness.
This Casa Américo Jaen 2016 has an open ruby color, a subtle aroma. In the mouth it is elegant, with good acidity and very round tannins.

Citing Roger Voss, Casa Américo Jaen (also known as Spanish Mencía) is one of the grapes that make up a standard blend in the Dão region.
