Characteristics of Fraga do Corvo Mencía

Fraga do Corvo Mencía is a red wine from D.O. Monterrei produced by Grandes Pagos Gallegos de Viticultura Tradicional.

 

Grandes Pagos Gallegos de Viticultura Tradicional is a project that aims to make wines in the best areas of Galicia and with the traditional varieties of each region. At the head of the technical management, we can find the renowned oenologist José Manuel Martinez Juste, also the oenologist of Quinta de Couselo, a winery that belongs to the group since 2013.

 

Fraga do Corvo Mencía is a wine made from 100% Mencía, from a vineyard located on one of the historical hillsides of Monterrei,

They are manually harvested and placed in 15 kg boxes. Grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once the harvest arrives at the winery, it is refrigerated in a cool chamber at 5ºC. After a second selection of grapes on a vibrating sorting table, they are destemmed by hand. Then they go through cold maceration for two weeks, and after the wine is devatted, it is left to ferment in 500-litre French oak barrels. When the alcoholic and the malolactic fermentation have finished, part of the wine goes through static ageing in stainless steel deposits. The other part is left in fine grain French oak barrels for 7 months.  The wine stands for at least three months before it is launched on the market.

 

Fraga do Corvo Mencía is a fluid, intense and fresh wine. An excellent example of the potential of the Mencía variety in this area.

Designation of Origin D.O. Monterrei

Winery Grandes Pagos Gallegos

The Monterrei Valley is often only considered for the cultivation of cereals, fruit trees and other horticultural products, but the Valley is today one of the most dynamic regions in terms of wine production. The transformation and improvement of viticulture and the installation of wineries such as Terra de Gargalo (owned by Roberto Verino), Pazos del Rey, Quinta do Muradella, Lobazán and Valdevellos, among others, have contributed to increased production of quality wines within designation of origin, which are becoming ever more present in the main Spanish markets.
