The red 2016 A Torna Dos Pasás is a blend of 40% Brancellao, Caíño Longo, Ferrol and Caíño Redondo with only 12% alcohol. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and matured in 300-liter oak barrels for 12 months before bottling. There is a great improvement in the reds, which feel more elegant and less rustic, while keeping the character and chalky tannins from the granite soils and the tension they deliver. The aromas and flavors are quite pure and defined, and there is very nice balance.

For Luis’ main red wine A Torna Dos Pasas, he blends the native grapes Brancellao, Caiño Longo, Caiño Redondo, and Ferrol from many tiny parcels around Arnoia. The grapes were hand-harvested and destemmed, fermented with native yeasts in steel vat with 15 days maceration, then raised in used 300 liter French oak barrels for 12 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered, and aged an additional year before release. It is a fresh, aromatic, and medium-bodied vinho tinto with lush and spicy flavors of red fruits, black pepper, and purple flowers.
