Characteristics of Formigo

Formigo is a white wine produced by the winery Adega Manuel Formigo in Beade, D.O.Ribeiro.

 

Manuel Formigo started to produce his own wines in the winery located in the basement of the old family house. Currently, he makes wine in the winery built next to the 4-hectare vineyard, Finca Teira, which became “bodega de colleteiro”.

Manuel Formigo only cultivates his own farms so that he can control the whole process. His vineyards are planted with local varieties, located mainly on granitic soils, loose and well oxygenated. The vines' ages range from 20 to 35-40 years.

The aim of Manuel Formigo is to cultivate in a sustainable way, respecting the environment and seeking the maximum expression of the local varieties, to create unique wines, capable of transmitting all the character of his farms, as well as their freshness, complexity, balance and elegance.

 

Formigo is a wine made from Albariño, Loureira Blanca, Godello, Torrontés, Treixadura and Palomino. This wine is made from the pressed must of the grapes that are saved for the best wines of the winery.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, 16ºC, for 14 days. It does not go through malolactic fermentation.

 

Formigo is a light, fresh and aromatic wine. Very fruity on the nose, flowery and easy to drink.

Tasting notes Formigo

Formigo 2017 is a fresh and dry white wine. This wine made with different white grapes from the area offers us floral and white fruit notes on the nose. In the mouth, it is fresh, austere and saline. A good wine to get to know the true profile of the wines from the Ribeiro area.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Ribeiro

    Winery Adega Manuel Formigo

    La Treixadura has established itself as the prominent variety of the Ribeiro. The variety has become irreplaceable in the region, responsible for the fame achieved by the region's wines, as well as their glorious past. It is a well planted strain, vigorous, fairly resistant to disease, with middle productivity and late maturing, which helps produce wines with a spectacular and personal character through the variety, full of freshness and flavour in the mouth, and added mystery.
