Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Ledes is a single-variety Albariño white wine produced by the Casa Monte Pío winery in the D.O. Rías Baixas, in Galicia, Spain.

Casa Monte Pío is a family winery in the municipality of Ribadumia within the Val Do Salnés sub-region. Generation after generation have passed down their values and taken care of their vineyards with the aim of producing wines that capture the identity of their past and their land, which is where the Albariño grape expresses itself best.

The clusters used to make the Ledes wine come from their own vineyards with sandy, mineral soils and vines aged over 50 years old that are manually harvested in 15 kg boxes.

When the grapes reach the winery, they go through a second selection process followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures. The resulting wine ages with its fine lees for 12 months. The cold of winter naturally reduces the tartaric acid and malolactic fermentation finishes during the mild spring. The wine is then rounded ready for bottling at the beginning of the summer following the harvest.

The Casa Monte Pío winery does not usually release its vintages consecutively. The vintage that goes on sale is the one that, having been tasted, is found to be in the perfect state for releasing to the market. If a vintage has not finished rounding, it rests in the cellar for as long as necessary, to make sure each wine is at its best at the time of consumption and respecting the unique characteristics of each vintage.

Casa Monte Pío is a family winery with defined Galician distinguishing marks. Thanks to the Albariño variety, planted in the heart of Valle del Salnés, it’s birthplace. Thanks to the influence of the ocean; in fact, some of the vineyards are literally planted next to the sea. Thanks to the small plots, typical smallholdings (minifundios) of the Galician landscape. Thanks to the way they train the vineyards, aiming to avoid the soil’s moisture.
Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.
