Product Description

Crafted by star winemaker Raúl Pérez and the prestigious Galician oenologist Rodrigo Méndez, Goliardo Caiño belongs to the "Tintos de Mar" collection, which groups the red wines produced by bodega Forjas del Salnés.

Made in DO Rías Baixas, this Spanish red wine is a varietal Caiño Tinto, a long-forgotten indigenous variety that produces crisp wines with exceptional acidity and an unmistakable Atlantic character.

On top of that, the grapes come from vineyards located close to the sea. This fact gives this red wine from Rías Baixas a uniquely saline character.

After fermenting in stainless steel tanks, the grapes completed malolactic fermentation in 225-litre French oak barrels. Then Goliardo Caiño 2017 was aged in the barrels for 14 months.

This is a truly special, internationally renowned Crianza red wine from Rías Baixas.

It is important to decant the wine some time before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Caiño Tinto is medium purple with some ruby tinges.


Fragrant notions of wild berries, blue flowers, fern and aromatic herbs, combined with some mineral undertones. Astoundingly complex, this varietal Caiño Tinto also suggests a salty remembrance and dim notes of spices and toast.


This wine from Forjas del Salnés is fresh, energetic and tight as a drum. Smooth tannins and fabulous acidity, with flavours of violets, red cranberries, earth, salt and spices. Long, mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Is it possible for a wine to be exceedingly drinkable and also quite profound? Goliardo Caiño 2017 proves that it certainly is.
