"Constantina Sotelo is a vigneronne that has been making wine under her own name since 1999 with the support of her family. Together, they've created a micro-project that truly stands out compared to other wineries in the Rias Baixas. She is driven by Albariño and its relation to the soil, playing with different vinification methods and vessels, such as skin maceration, aging under flor, aging amphora or aging in cement eggs. The resulting wines are singular and pure representations of the grape like we've never experienced before." - Nomadic (the importer)

This is a fun and interesting skin contact Albarino aged in tinajas (Spanish clay vessels similar to amphora pictured as an amp on the label). It's plenty extracted with deep minerality, nice tannic grip, and lifted acid. It's joyful drinking
