The wine

Lalama is a wine with an Atlantic character and Burgundy style. It comes from the Ribeira Sacra, a landscape of terraces and hillsides with steeply-inclined slopes that leave a lasting impression on visitors and leave their mark on the wine, impregnating its character: fresh, limpid and restrained.

Externally and internally, Lalama exudes quality: a first-class cork, a white, minimalist and elegant, clear-cut label and a Burgundy-type bottle. Its Picota cherry colour is not very dark nor dense, of medium intensity, the result of manufacture without huge extraction, an authentic wine, with a definite identity.

Lalama brims with red fruit, extremely fresh fruit coated with morning dew, woodland berries: redcurrants, raspberries, red cherries, and ripe fruit too, with touches of sweetness, a sweet-tasting sensation but not overly stated. In essence it is clearly fruit-forward but not lacking complexity either: a gentle perfume of flowers and vegetal notes, countryside flowers, white and yellow fruits, citrus fruits, a suggestion of new leather, not exhibiting toasty notes but certainly a trace of coffee, and minerality evident. A frank and refined nose.

On the palate, its entrance is very much in keeping with aromas already discerned. It is luscious yet not heavy, light and agile as it passes through the mouth, revealing fantastic acidity and plenty of sinew, a wine with structure, glyceric, rounded, with a lactic touch, and an ever-present sensation of freshness, an Atlantic marine freshness, and some lovely clayey notes reminiscent of those Cerasuolos from Sicily. An aromatic red on the nose and oily on the palate; smooth and polished, pleasant and with only 13% alcohol, it makes a fantastic drink.

Decant it an hour beforehand and enjoy a taste of the Ribeira Sacra, which for some good reason came by this name.
