Vico is a wine made by Bodegas y Viñedos Raul Pérez. It comes from Raul’s village, Valtuille de Abajo. The name Vico pays tribute to Patrick Mata’s older brother, Victor, a lawyer who resides in southern Spain’s town of Marbella and a person with an abiding fascination
with the unique expressions of terroir found throughout Spain. Vico may be Raul’s most extreme wine and it’s strongly suggested that you decant it if you drink it within five years
of the vintage. One of Spain’s hottest young superstar winemakers, Raul is considered among the best winemakers in the world. He believes great wines are made in the vineyard, yet Raul won’t hesitate to use different winemaking methods to allow his vineyards better expression. Raul has an uncanny knack for knowing what his vineyards need to achieve their greatest potential. As his great talent has become known, many winemakers now seek to collaborate with Raul. In 2010, Wine&Spirits Magazine named Bodegas y Viñedos Raul Pérez
“Winery of The Year.” This limited-production wine from Bierzo is a perfect example of a clean, bright and pure Mencía wine.
What makes this wine unique?
This wine has a miniscule total production of 500 cases. Of all of his remarkable wines, this is perhaps Raul Pérez’s best value. Vico is a village wine from the Valtuille de Abajo subzone of Bierzo. Made from dry-farmed (no irrigation) old vines that are head pruned. As with all of Raul’s wines, the viticulture is organic. 30% whole cluster maceration before, during and after fermentation for 60 days. A wine that will age for 20 years.
