Characteristics of Monte Pío Albariño

Monte Pío is a white wine produced by Bodegas Casa Monte Pío in Ribadumia (Pontevedra), D.O. Ría Baixas.

 

Bodegas Casa Monte Pío is a family-run winery that was founded in 1979 in Ribadumia (Val do Salnés). Their aim was to create wines that reflected the tradition of several generations, continuing with the activity in the vineyard.

The vineyard of Bodegas Casa Monte Pío is comprised of small plots, typical of the Galician smallholdings (minifundios). With an average age of 25 years, the vineyard is located in the heart of the subarea Val do Salnés. Soils are formed by sands with decomposing granite and the climate is humid oceanic with warm summers. The average annual temperature is one of the highest in Galicia, despite of high rainfall throughout the year.

To cultivate the vineyard they carry out an integrated production, using their resources and natural production mechanisms to the maximum extent. This way, they can ensure a sustainable agriculture in the long run.

 

Monte Pío is a wine made from Albariño, from their own vineyards, located at 60 meters above sea level, on sandy soils with great minerality.

Harvest is carried out manually and placed in 15-kg boxes. Once the grapes arrive at the winery, they are destemmed and gently pressed. The must they obtain goes through a settling process by gravity. Fermentation is spontaneous, carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. Before being bottled, it is left to stand for 3 months with its fine lees.

 

Monte Pío is an aromatic, deep and fresh wine. The strongly marked notes of the variety stand out, on a mineral background provided by the terroir.

Tasting notes Monte Pío Albariño

The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Casa Monte Pío

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
