Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The red 2021 Quite was produced with fruit from Valtuille de Abajo, from old vines, with the fine-boned, aerial and fresh profile of the 2021s that are more ethereal and vibrant. In 2021, she started to use some stems and some white grapes, which makes the wine even more fluid and vibrant. This is very elegant and fine-boned, quite ethereal within the Mencía on clay profile, with roundness and clout. It has a moderate 12% alcohol. She's looking forward to a longer élevage for this wine, which is now under one year in oak vat because she needs the vat for the following harvest, and she should be able to do that in the new winery. 22,000 bottles produced.



Quite is a young crianza red wine made with the native Mencía grape variety by the Verónica Ortega winery within the Bierzo DO.
The grapes come from 80-100 year old vines planted on sandy-clay soils with pebbles (quartzite, slate...).


The grapes are harvested by hand, cluster by cluster, at optimum ripeness. On arrival at the winery, after destemming in stainless steel tanks, the grapes are lightly worked during fermentation to avoid marked extraction. The maceration is short and lasts 10-15 days.
The wine is aged for 8 months as follows: 35% of the wine is aged in 228-litre French oak barrels of second to fourth use, 40% in truncated cone-shaped wooden vats and 25% in 800-litre terracotta amphorae. Finally, the wine is lightly filtered before bottling to remove the coarser particles.


Quite is a wine that shows a very personal floral aroma. In the mouth it has a seductive taste, sweet tannins and a fluid acidity on the palate.

A fragrant and light wine

Quite is a wine produced by the winery Verónica Ortega in the DO Bierzo in the small village of Valtuille de abajo, in the Bierzo region of Spain.
It is a red wine with a very peculiar winemaking process, as part of the wine has been aged in barrels, another part in truncated cone-shaped wooden vats and a third part in clay amphorae.
This ageing process has resulted in a wine to be enjoyed and highly valued by critics year after year.
In the gastronomic field it has been recommended to accompany dishes with botillo del Bierzo, grilled, baked, stewed or grilled red meats and dinners with friends.
