Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Loureiro Tinto is the only red grape from Rías Baixas that has a deep color, and the 2017 Goliardo Loureiro certainly has that. The grapes are from a 45-year-old vineyard planted on sandy soils, fermented destemmed in stainless steel and oak barrels, and then the wine matured in 500-liter oak barrels for 12 months. Loureiro is close to Sousón and Ferrón in style, the family of darker, more rustic red Galician varieties, and it's always a little earthy. It's quite round and juicy, with some dusty tannins. Within its rusticity, this is finer and more elegant than the Loureiro from the past. 1,300 bottles were filled in February 2020.
Between 14ºC and 16ºC
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
