Product Description:

"Bright orange-pink. Fresh red berries, tangerine and a hint of spiciness on the nose. Fleshy and seamless in the mouth, offering pliant raspberry and orange gelato flavors and a hint of melon. The spicy note comes back slowly on the smooth, subtly warm finish, which leaves a sweet red fruit note behind." - 88 points Josh Raynolds

Tasting Notes:
Medium intensity cherry pink. Aroma of ripe red fruit and hints of strawberry sweet, glace cherries and citrus. The palate is medium bodied with good acidity and fruit.

Winery:
The Palacio de Canedo estate has been associated with wine since 1730. In those times they would make and store 30 thousand liters of wine from the vineyards surrounding the Palace. In that era it was run by the Lord and Lady of Canedo, nowadays by Prada and Flor.

In 1987 Prada decided to buy the palace with the main idea to keep it alive and create a winery that works with the land. He operates on 30 hectares of land with 60-70 year old vines that are all hand harvested. At 600-800m elevation, the wines retain bright acidity. Soils made up of ‘pimentero’, name given to the red tone similar to pimento peppers, are clay based with some slate. With respect to the excellent soil, Palacio de Canedo has focused their efforts on ecological agriculture.

The concept has always been very clear: respect the earth and the environment. Operating as a certified organic establishment, insecticides and weed killers are never used. The goal is a clean and aromatic wine, deriving its taste and color only from grapes. It is wine made in the vineyard, with all of the character from the land that produced it. In the winery they allow nature to follow its own course, looking after what the land produced. This is the way they obtain authentic wine with a spherical soul.
