Within the red wines of aging that you can find in the Mercadona line there is one that for its quality and price is the least acceptable. I’m talking about Abadaia Mantrus Crianza, a wine with D.O. Ribera del Duero balanced, with structure and a pleasant finish. Its cheap price makes it an affordable drink to accompany meals daily, or at least the days when meat is eaten, which is what best matches with this Ribera del Duero red wine.
Maturation. The time this Abadia Mantrus wine has been in a young oak barrel is 12 months and after empaprse of the aromas of the wood, another 24 months are kept bottled before going on sale. In this way the wine continues to mature and its organoleptic properties are enriched.
Appearance and taste. The color of the red wine Abadia Mantrus Crianza is an intense red, similar to that of a ripe cherry. Its flavor is intense but it does not have shrillness because it is balanced, without affecting its structure, which includes different groups of flavors, from fruit to wood, without forgetting the floral sensations. If you taste the Abadia Mantrus delicately you can perceive notes of wild fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, mineral aromas and toasted wood.
This red wine with denomination of origin in the Ribera del Duero is a perfect host for a meal in which beef, suckling pig or pork are the main element. It is also well taken with sausages or a cheese board, at the beginning of a dinner or lunch. It is not out of place with legumes or with softer meats such as poultry, but a good pairing will depend in part on the recipe that accompanies Mantrus Abbey.
