Characteristics Finca Teira Tinto
Finca Teira Tinto is a red wine produced by the winery Adega Manuel Formigo in Beade, D.O.Ribeiro.
Manuel Formigo started to produce his own wines in the winery located in the basement of the old family house. Currently, he makes wine in the winery built next to the 4-hectare vineyard, Finca Teira, which became “bodega de colleteiro”.
Manuel Formigo only cultivates his own farms so that he can control the whole process. His vineyards are planted with local varieties, located mainly on granitic soils, loose and well oxygenated. The vines' ages range from 20 to 35-40 years.
The aim of Manuel Formigo is to cultivate in a sustainable way, respecting the environment and seeking the maximum expression of the local varieties, to create unique wines, capable of transmitting all the character of his farms, as well as their freshness, complexity, balance and elegance.
Finca Teira Tinto is a wine made from the varieties caiño and brancellao, most of them planted in the farm Pousos, the youngest plot in Finca Teira, and part of them planted in the farm Miñoteira.
Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are crushed and vatted in stainless steel deposits, where they go through fermentation with daily pump-overs and aeration at the beginning. At a density of 1020, it is devatted to finish the fermentation without the skins.
Finca Teira Tinto is a fluid, powerful and fresh wine. It stands out for the intensity of red fruit on a delicate balsamic background.
