Part of the vineyards are arranged in one of the routes through which the Camino de Santiago takes place. In the town of O Barco, the Torrizola plots of old vines that are over 60 years old, and No Serro with more than 150, they confer that pure and authentic Galician character.
Slaty soil and continental climate, the Atlantic influence is made patent with extreme temperatures between summer and winter, that result in high quality wines. The key to the development of this expressive red has been to get the right touch of wood to not eliminate the freshness and the primary memories of the Mencía grape. It has been 5 months of perfect Crianza aging in American and French oak barrels and a rest of not less than two months in bottle, before going out to the market and enjoying this magnificent “elixir.”
It will develop in the bottle in the years to come.
It presents a transparent ruby color with aromas of red fruits, currants and blackberries. In the mouth, it is balanced, subtly accompanied by notes of raisins and ripe fig jam.
Ideal with foie-micuit, steak tartare, red meats and gamey dishes.
