Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Castro Candaz Finca El Curvado is a red wine from the D.O. Ribeira Sacra produced by Raúl Pérez. This wine is made using only Mencía (100%) grapes.

Castro Candaz Finca El Curvado was conceived as a brilliant idea of Raúl Pérez. As part of a generation who revelutionised El Bierzo, Pérez found his fame when his 2005 vintage of Ultreia de Valtuille, produced by the winery Castro Ventosa, scored an impressive 98 Parker points. From this new found fame, the Spaniard untook several new projects; including this Castro Candaz collection at D.O Ribeira Sacra.

The local climate is characterised by a presence of strong continental influences, even the areas close to the riverbeds usually have moderately warmer temperatures. The soils have a strong acidity and are generally sandy, quite complex with the possibility of finding granitic elements. The vineyards are cultivated and grown on steep slopes, which is characteristic of the region.

Castro Candaz Finca El Curvado then passes through the various phases of the wine production process, the harvest, vinification and manufacturing. Before being bottled and placed onto the market, the wine is aged for a year in French oak barrels.

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.
