Description:

Francisco Asorei was a famous Galician sculptor. He was born in Cambados, the core of the Albariño region. He is considered as one of the most important figures in the renewal of the Galician and Spanish sculpture of the twentieth century.

In Terra de Asorei we work the vineyards in the same way that the sculptor works the stone: carving with chiselings of experience, science and soul to get art to become wine: our Albariño Terra de Asorei, a selected wine aged on lees. 


Tasting Notes:

Terra de Asorei presents a beautiful straw yellow color with greenish reflections.

On the nose there are aromatic herbs, dill, bay leaf, balsamic as well as citrus notes (grapefruit and lemon) and tropical notes (flat peach and stone fruit).

On the palate, the wine is fresh & rich, with a slight touch of sweetness with citrus and stone fruit flavors.
