Characteristics of Viña Somoza O Tesouro

Viña Somoza O Tesouro is a red wine produced by the winery Viñedos Somoza in A Rúa de Valdeorras, Ourense. D.O. Valdeorras.

 

Viñedos Somoza is a winery that was founded in the first third of the 20th century by Victor Fernández. His idea was to make wines with the grapes from his vineyards, after hard work of recovering the native varieties.

After 2 generations, Viñedos Somoza performs its activity with the latest technological advances in oenology, without leaving behind the inherited winemaking tradition. However, it was from 2015 when they carried out a drastic change with the incorporation of Javier García (Bodega 4 Monos, Madrid). They intended to make wine from their 5 hectares of vineyard with the least intervention possible. The results are wines that express all the potential of the variety and the terroir.

 

Viña Somoza O Tesouro is a wine made from Brancellao or Albarello from a 0,25-hectare plot surrounded by chestnut trees, planted 15 years ago at around 580 metres of altitude on stony soils.

They are manually harvested and placed in 15 kg boxes. Grapes are selected in the vineyards. Once they arrive at the winery, they use 90% of the grapes, with whole bunches. After the rest is stomped, they ferment with native yeasts and they go through cold maceration for 42 days. This wine is aged for 9 months in 400 and 500-litre French oak barrels.

 

Viña Somoza O Tesouro is a juicy, light and fresh wine. It stands out for its pale colour thanks to the features of the variety. Very aromatic on the nose, with aromas of fresh red fruit and notes of flowers and spices. In the mouth it is easy to drink and elegant. Only 750 bottles.
