A wood fairy on her swing, surrounded by the idyllic forests of the D.O. Ribeira Sacra, leaving behind a tail of flavours evoking the unmistakable nuances of the Mencía grape. For a time it was thought to be a variety of Cabernet Franc, but is now regarded as a varietal originating in Spain.

Red cherry colour with a violet trim. On the nose, it is a pure expression of Mencía, red fruits such as blackberries and raspberries with and liquorice. It has a spectacular fruit flavours with interesting slate mineral and spicy and toasted notes. It is delicious and well structured; its balance stands out with soft touches of tannin and a lasting finish that invites another mouthful.

Match with red meats, pork, lamb.

Produced at their Bodegas Rectoral de Amandi winery, this wine continues the Gallegas family commitment to top quality winemaking – introducing a modern and contemporary offering named after one of the founder’s granddaughters.
