Alvaro Castro is a true original in the world of wine and his two estates (separate properties, but the same wines are bottled under both names) are among the leaders of this appellation set on a high plateau between mountain ranges. The Pellada estate dates back to the 16th century and wine was made there until 1945, when the family reverted to selling to the local co-op. Alvaro took control in 1989 and established the winery at Saes and has been building a reputation second to none for both red and white wines of great complexity and aging potential ever since.

Bright ruby-garnet. On the nose, powerful aromatics that gain explosivity with some air. Sour cherry, raspberry, cranberry, flint, truffle and violets comingle on the nose. On the palate, this is an elegant, finessed wine with restraint to its power and structure. Built to age, this is tightly wound in its youth with mouthwatering acidity but a beautiful purity to the core of red fruit and minerals. Finishes long, with impeccable balance.
