Fedellos do Couto As Xaras is a single-variety Mencía red wine produced by the Fedellos do Couto winery in the DO Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain.

Fedellos do Couto is a relatively new project set up by winemakers Curro Barreño, Jesús Olivares and Luis Taboada, whose family has owned Couto, a 12th century house in the Ribeira Sacra, for generations. They use totally heroic viticulture along the steep slopes of the Sil and Bibei rivers, where they grow varieties with true Galician identity and character.

Fedellos do Couto As Xaras is a red wine made with Mencía grapes from two vineyards that are located on both banks of the Jares River (Xares, in Galician) which is one of the tributaries of the Bibei River. This land has predominantly granitic and schist soils with quartzite.

The grapes bunches are vinified whole. They go through long macerations and ferment in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. The resulting wine goes through a combined aging in concrete tanks and in different sized French oak barrels.

Fedellos do Couto As Xaras is a smooth and flavoursome red wine, a juicy Mencía with fresh acidity and beautiful minerality.

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.
