Characteristics of Lalama

Lalama is a red wine from the Ribeira Sacra prepared by the Dominio de Bibei winery.

Lalama is a blend in which Mencia (90%) predominates, accompanied by Brancellao and, to a lesser extent, Mouratón, Souson and Grenache (10%).

The grapes used to produce this wine comes from vineyards between 15 and 100 years old, planted at an altitude of between 300 and 700 metres above sea level and on different types of soil; slate, clay or granite.

The harvest is done manually in small boxes of 10 kg. Each variety is harvested separately. A first selection of grapes occurs in the vineyard, and a second is performed at the winery. The grapes are destemmed and each grain is selected.

Maceration takes place over two days, before starting the fermentation in French oak open barrels of 500 litres and wooden tanks. The grapes are moved manually and are removed from the vats by hand.

Subsequent malolactic fermentation occurs in barrels of 300 litres.

Lalama
is aged for 13 months in French oak barrels which have had several uses, it then spends seven months in truncated French oak and 16 months in bottle.

Tasting notes Lalama

Lalama 2014 is a linear and precise wine. In this very good vintage, the aromas of red berries are perfectly combined with a good acidity. A wine to discover the great potential of the Ribeira Sacra.
Sight Powerful red cherry with light violet touches and tear. Nose Upper-middle layer, fresh red fruit predominates. Spicy, mild and floral aromas. Balsamic and toasted notes. Taste Deliciously fruity and floral, long friendly taste. Very good acidity and integrated tannins. It is light and very tasty. Very well balanced finish.
Sight Pretty ruby colour with violet reflection and maroon edges. Bright and clean, medium-high robe with abundant fine tears on the glass. Nose Medium-high intensity. Fresh red fruit takes centre stage. Once oxigenated, dozens of nuances are released...spicy notes, floral touches, intense balsamic aromas, evocative aromatic herbs, subtle toasted notes along with the same red fruit, now very ripe. Nice mineral background. Taste Delicate and fresh. Silky and tasty on the palate with a very good concentration of fruit and more toasted notes than in the nose. Structured, with very good acidity, very integrated, and polished tannins. Long and persistent finish with some slightly bitter touches. Very appetising.
Sight Attractive cherry colour with intense red edges. Bright and clean wine with a medium-high robe and abundant dense tears. Nose On its expressive mineral background, juicy, intense and expressive notes of ripe fruit are noticed along with creamy toasted aromas, balsamic hints and fresh notes reminiscent of purple flowers and forest herbs. Once it opens up, some surprising citrus nuances are also released. Taste Very tasty, expressive and well structured red wine with a long, full-bodied, velvety and intense mid palate. It is warmer than in the previous vintages and its floral notes are more intense. Its juicy notes of ripe fruit are wrapped in creamy aromas on a very noticeable minerality. Marked acidity and elegant tannins. Great persistence, which leaves a pleasant aftertaste with mineral hints.  An elegant and fresh wine with a great evolution in the glass. An enjoyable wine.
Sight Cherry colour with maroon edges. Bright, with thin tears that stain the glass. Nose Wine with an Atlantic character with very expressive ripe red and black fruit. Notes of wet undergrowth and creamy toasted touches are also noticed on a subtle background of flowers, balsamics and sweet spices. A wine that gains in intensity and complexity when it opens up. Taste This wine from Dominio de Bibei has a smooth and elegant attack and a tasty, almost sweet, and velvety mid palate. It shows distinct fruity notes with a touch of milk. Its polished tannins are nicely integrated. Well structured and balanced wine with a good finish that invites to have a second helping.
Sight Cherry red. Nose Intense aroma with fruit display, with red fruit the protagonist. Taste In the mouth it presents a rich structure and acidity.

Production area D.O. Ribeira Sacra

Winery Dominio do Bibei

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.
