Tasting Notes

Cherry red and medium layer, very clean and bright wine. On the nose, once the reductive notes typical of the variety disappear, there is an explosion of red fruit (raspberry, cherry) and blackberries, which, together with the combined lactic notes, remind us of trinkets (strawberry lollipops). And with very present mineral notes (graphite). The attack on the palate is fresh, but as it runs through the mouth, we find an enveloping, warm wine that reflects the excellent relationship between acidity and glycerin.


Founded in 1998 by Fernando González and his wife Ana Pérez in the Amandi subzone. Their 22 acres of land include the majestic Carballocovo plot, a true landmark in Ribeira Sacra. Southern exposure, schist soils, heroic viticulture and a humble winemaking that relies in the natural process (ambient yeasts, spontaneous malolactic fermentation), foot-crushing, fermenting in open vats with a judicious amount of stems, and using old neutral oak as a general rule.
