Another one of the cellars of the winery, ALGUEIRA SERRADELO, is made 100% with the native variety Brancellao, coming from plots with different orientations, it is fermented in stainless steel with short post-fermentation macerations and crianzas superior to 12 months in French oak barrels of 225 liters. Brancellao offers wines without a lot of layers and of intense cherry colour, with certain orange borders appropriate to ageing. At first, the rusticity of the variety appears with a marked reduction that gives way to memories of ripe acid fruit (red plum) and balsamic (black tea, laurel), with a bottom of marc. In the first sip, the acidity stands out, with a round mouth in the mouth, surprising with a final tannic punch that marks the strength and personality of the variety. In English aftertaste flavours of chocolate.
