Project Description

Xión Cuveé Tinto

The youngest and most fruity expression of the autochthonous red grapes of Rías Baixas. A blend of red varieties that complement each other enhanced with a slight touch of oak from its short ageing in oak foudre giving as a result a fresh and light wine to enjoy by glass, as aperitif or pairing your tapas, charcuterie, cheeses and pates.
