Wonderful bright cherry in colour this Brancellao exudes a bouquet of fresh red cherries and a little earthiness. The palate is silky and seductive yet maintains a lovely freshness. The finish is full of elegance yet has a very appealing rustic quality.

  • Delivery Information

Brancellao (Alvarello) 100%, is a late grape, matures about 15 days later than the Mencía. Fermented and macerated for 6 days with 2-3 daily remounts in a 500 liter barrel. Malolactic fermentation and subsequent aging for 7 months in Allier wood cask. Only yeasts and natural lactic bacteria are used, neither is it filtered or clarified. The only added product is sulfur in low quantity.

Eleven hectares of cultivated terrace, with a south-facing orientation, 80% slope, and the vineyard is bathed along its lower bound by the Sil river. These conditions, combined with the characteristics of the soil (slate and sandstone, well drained) and a perfect climate, provide excellent grounds for splendid wine that captivates palates. The vines, belonging to Mencía, Alvarello, Caíño and Sousón varieties, are older than 24 years. They have a maximum production of two kilos per vine. They are the greatest asset of the winery. Approximately 50,000 kilos of grapes are produced each year. The vineyard is not fertilized or irrigated: the vines grow in extreme conditions where they self-regulate. This makes every year’s production have different characteristics.
