Vinous, 90 Points

Ribeira Sacra is quickly becoming a hot spot for Spanish wines. The wines are very naturally made and their distinct earthiness and intensity makes them delicious with savory cuisine. A true family production, this wine is also certified organic.

According to Vinous, this wine is “Vivid ruby-red. Dark berries, black pepper and licorice on the perfumed nose, with a smoky mineral nuance adding vivacity. Tangy acidity gives spine to the bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors, with a suave floral note emerging with aeration. The mineral-driven finish is focused and very long, with a hint of bitter cherry and fine-grained tannins.

According to our team, it’s hard to find a better deal in the world of natural wines than this.

Organically grown.

Drink When: Winter Nights, Fireside, Camping Trips
Drink With: Lamb Croquettes, Eggplant Timbale, Swordfish with Lemon and Olive
