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. 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.
