Product Description
Details

Produced by the small batch winery O Cotarelo in DO Ribeiro, O Cotarelo Tinto is an appealing unoaked Spanish red wine made from native Galician grapes.

An equal blend of Brancellao and Sousón, two scarce indigenous varieties of very high quality, the grapes were sorted from over 60-year-old vineyards which had been abandoned for some years and were put back into wine production by Mr. Benigno Ríos, head winemaker of the company.

Hand-harvested and meticulously selected, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then O Cotarelo Tinto 2020 was aged for some months in the tanks until its bottling.

This blended red wine from Ribeiro will be a great match for red meat recipes and stews.

Appearance

The red wine O Cotarelo Tinto is deep ruby with some maroon glints.

Nose

Quite original, this blend of Brancellao and Sousón carries loads of red fruit: raspberries, wild strawberries and sour cherries, with subtle mineral notes and some floral and herbal nuances. 

Palate

This wine from bodega Adega O Cotarelo carries layers of red fruit, which is ripe and yummy, but not in a Mediterranean, sun-drenched way. Fresh and fluid, with smooth tannins, great freshness and a definitely Atlantic side. Long finish with some mineral and herbal remembrances.

Our personal opinion

The unique personality of the Galician red varieties in distinctively showcased in O Cotarelo Tinto 2020.
