Characteristics of A Coroa 200 Cestos
A Coroa 200 Cestos is a very special white wine from the D.O. Valdeorras since it is made of 100% Godello grapes from the best vineyard of the winery, which has hundred-year-old vines planted on terraces. Due to the location, orientation and altitude of this plot, the full potential of Godello grapes is obtained, standing out the elegance, complexity and traditional aromatic power of this variety and enhanced by a greater colour intensity, freshness and fruity background. A Coroa is a family winery but, even though, it counts on current and modern wine-making facilities. The philosophy of this winery is to produce quality wines by means of a rational and modern vine-growing. Stephen Tanzer rated three wines from Bodega A Coroa as the best Spanish white wines in the International Wine Cellar 2013. 200 Cestos 2012 scored 93 points out of 100.
