This wine is named after Amadeo and Olga from whom we were able to take over a plot at Bexan. This wine mainly shows what is also possible in the Ribeira Sacra. For the region, the Amadeo is a fairly rich wine, not very unusual, but the wines are on average somewhat thinner and the alc. quality much lower. The grapes come from the west-facing slopes of the Miño near Bexan and the east-facing slope of the picturesque valley of the Cabe near the town of O Cotillón. The grapes are picked and selected by hand. They were then fermented in stainless steel and aged +/- 8 months in French oak; 1 new untoasted barrel of 228 liters and a 3 year old barrel of 500 liters. In the nose it is red and black, well ripe and sultry, the untoasted wood provides a subtle spicy touch. The taste is powerful and rich, yet fresh, with considerable length. Serve well aerated, at least until the end of 2022, the storage potential is at least 5 to 10 years.
