The name “Doncella”, which means “Maiden”, has its origin in an ancient story about the Pago Guijoso vineyard. It is said that when the vines were young, a young maiden used to take a walk through them every afternoon to watch the sun setting on the vines. Nobody perhaps saw her up close, but everybody said that this young maiden, who wore garlands of flowers, would sing songs of love in the vineyard. The vines today hold the secrets of those love songs of legend, which live on today in each bottle of “La Doncella”.
On the nose, fruit aromas such as blackberry and redcurrants come to the fore with lots of creamy notes and touches of spice. On the palate the wine shows lingering ripe fruit flavours that are well balanced by the acidity. This is an attractive wine with just the right amount of vivacity. It is harmonious from start to finish. Creamy notes come through in the finish with great definition, together with hints of liquorice.
