“All our single varietal reds follow the same winemaking philosophy seeking to transfer you to the most Atlantic Galicia. A rich and diverse land like the almost forgotten and abandoned red varietals in this secluded white wine region. Wines with very good acidity that have completely different personalities thanks to its authentic varietal expressions.
Brancellao is one of our most scarce reds varietals in Rias Baixas wine region with very limited production. Elegant, fresh, with very present fruit and delicate notes of oak that make it subtle and sumptuous. Its delicate colour would lead you to travel to our neighbour France and its acidity invites you to dream of a good ageing. Ideal for any type of white or red meat as well as meaty fish.
