Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Albamar Fusco is a monovarietal Mencía red wine from the Ribeira Sacra produced by Bodegas Albamar.

Albamar consists of a family project located in the municipality of Cambados (Pontevedra) that was founded 25 years ago. Baptised with the acronym that joins the family name Alba, and the fact that its vineyards are by the sea, this winery presents wines made with minimal intervention and a strong Atlantic character.

However, Albamar Fusco is a very particular creation. It consists of a red wine that comes from inland Galicia, far from the sea. Specifically in the sub-area of Chantada. A red wine made with vines that are between 30 and 40 years old, planted on granite and clay soil and bathed by a continental climate.

The creator of this initiative, Xuxo Alba, is committed to minimum interventionism, both in the vineyard and in the winery. A grape that has been harvested at its optimum point of ripening, and that, once harvested and destemmed, is fermented with skins and without stems for 20 days. For it ageing, Albamar Fusco rests on lees for between 4 and 6 months in stainless steel tanks, resulting in small, high quality productions.

Albamar Fusco consists of a fresh wine that is easy to drink and well balanced. A slightly spicy red wine that will allow you to enjoy the qualities of Mencía from Ribeira Sacra.

Pictures and situation Albamar
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.
