GODELLO FROM ONE OF THE BEST VINTAGES IN THE REGION
“The wine does have very good freshness, plus a very salty finish and the granite sensation that gives it an electric touch, complex, powerful and with a profile of a serious wine with very little bitterness; Palacios says it reminds him of the 2005 As Sortes. This has to be one of the best vintages of Louro, a clear step up from previous vintages.” The Wine Advocate
- Well balanced, very good freshness
- One of the best vintages of Louro
- Crisp, lingering finish
Cellaring: Drink when young
