Tasting Notes

This micro-production Galician red hails from the northernmost region for growing grapes not only in Galicia but in all Spain. It is fascinating: slightly rustic, with flavors of dark cherries showing dusty tannins and a decidedly old-fashioned flair (think top quality, traditional Dolcetto d'Alba). Pair with all types of hearty stews (vegetarian or Spanish style: brimming with lacon and chorizo) or a charcuterie plate. 11.5% ABV. (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish Wine Buyer)

    This is a bit of an oddball of a wine, but I was completely swept up in its intriguing complexity. A touch wild with a hint of rusticity, sure. Bordering on natural, yes. For some this might be a deal breaker, but the Casa Beade walks that tight rope, keeping it all together for a wonderfully complex and gastronomic wine. All you need is a good plate of charcuterie and some Manchego cheese.
