2017 D. Ventura Ribeira Sacra Viña Do Burato - Galicia, Spain
Ribeira Sacra (Sacred Banks), located in the heart of Galicia, is an incredibly stunning landscape and relatively cool climate for Spain. Do Burato is an old vine Mencia that’s grown on the steep, treacherous slopes along the Mino River and must be harvested by hand since no machine can navigate the slopes. The wine is a fresh, lively, medium-bodied, crisp red with moderate tannin a hint of barnyard or funk. Pairs gorgeously with Polbo a Feira, Galician Octopus Stew!
