Tasting notes Abadia da Cova

Sight Intense picota cherry colour with violet rim. Medium-high robe. Clean and bright. Abundant tears shown on the glass. Nose High intensity, very fruity. Powerful aromas of black fruit prevail. Ripe. Licorice tones, accompanied by herbal notes and moist soil. A balsamic, slightly spicy background with subtle floral hints. Taste Shows good attack, light, agile, fruity and smooth on the palate. Very good acidity and some soft tannins. Well-structured, balanced, lively, meaty, tender, and a hint of warmth. Long finish, with a very pleasant and persistent bitter touch that leaves nuances of licorice fruits and fragrant flowers in the retro-olfaction. A round red wine without edges, more subtle on the palate than in the nose.
Sight Red cherry, well covered, brilliant.
Nose Powerful nose clean, attractive, very fruity and distinctive personality. Taste After nose clean and powerful, fruity and floral character. Well built, balanced, smooth, live bait and a point of tenderness and warmth.

Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Ribeira Sacra is one of those magical places that you just have to visit to truly experience it. The vertiginous terraces rise steep on the banks of the river Sil, making the terrain difficult to work on that it requires complete manual work and labor on the vineyards. The agriculture carried out here is aptly referred to as ‘heroic agriculture’, due to the hard work carried out cultivating the land. Both red and white wines are produced in the Ribeira Sacra. The red wines are mostly made with the Mencía variety, defined by their expressive and elegant character with a good acidity. The Ribeira Sacra white wines are principally made with the Godello and Albariño varieties. They are wines with a good volume in the mouth, aromatic and fruity. The Ribeira Sacra wines are often come in very limited productions, are of high quality and with notable personalities.
