Ponte da Boga Capricho de Sousón is a wood-aged red wine made by Ponte da Boga with the native Sousón variety in the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, in Galicia (Spain).
Ponte da Boga is the oldest winery in the Ribeira Sacra. Located in “Terra de Caldelas”, a privileged wine-growing area at the edge of the Sil river, they are dedicated to recovering ancient native varieties to produce delicious, high-end small productions.
Ponte da Boga Capricho de Sousón comes from vines planted on steep terraces with slate soils, lying at an altitude of 500 metres above sea level. The estate is difficult to access so all work has to be carried out manually and the yields are very low.
In the winery, the Ponte da Boga Capricho de Sousón grapes are destemmed and crushed to ferment for 10 days with gentle pump-overs and they macerate for 8 to 10 days. Then malolactic fermentation begins and the wine is aged for 10 months in second and third use French oak barrels.
Working to the philosophy of recovering ancient varieties, Ponte da Boga Capricho de Sousón is a truly unique red wine. Made with the ancient Sousón variety, this is a vibrant, powerful single-variety wine with plenty of personality.
