Almanova  is a red wine from D.O.Ribeira Sacra produced by Adega Pena das Donas in Pombeiro, in the province of Lugo.

 

Adega Pena das Donas is located between two old vineyards planted with Cabreira and Retrotoiro, on the banks of the river Sil, in the province of Lugo, where the monks built the monastery of San Vicente de Pombeiro in the 12th century.

Its recently built facilities have the latest technology for the production and bottling of wine.

All the wines are made with grapes from their 5 hectares of vineyards located on the banks of the river Sil, on terraces with prevailing slate soils. These vineyards are organically cultivated, but they are not yet certified.

 

Almanova is a wine made from Mencía, from their own vineyards, which are over 60 years old, situated on the banks of the river Sil on sandy and slate soils.

The grapes are manually harvested and placed in boxes. Then, they are selected in the winery on a selection table. Fermentation is carried out in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature. It is only aged for 2 months in French and American oak barrels.

The vintages before 2017 were produced under the name Verdes Matas Mencía.

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.
