Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Somehow austere and classic, the 2012 Massuria is pure old-vine Mencía from a mixture of soils (sand and clay) fermented in a very traditional way and aged for one year in French oak barrels (15% new). It has some reductive aromas when you open the bottle, so a good, energetic decanting in advance could be a good idea. The Mas Asturias wines are quite cerebral, earthy and restrained, with aging potential. This 2012 has a classic structure and a polished mouthfeel with fine tannins and good freshness. It's approachable now, but it should age very well, as I've seen in older vintages. 15,000 bottles produced.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 12 months in new and second year French oak barrels.
