Very subtle yet intense nose. Iron, nutmeg, white pepper, wild berries, savory grilled herbs and some oranges. Fresh, silky tannins seep through the berries and white pepper flavors. Extremely long and mouthwatering finish that goes on and on.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2019 Dolio is a cuvée of Mencía, Brancellao (quite a lot here), Sousón, Caíño and Garnacha Tintorera created as a blend with the help of Telmo Rodríguez and Pablo Eguzkiza in this first vintage, but they should go much further in future years. They selected north- and west-facing vineyards to achieve more freshness in the wine, trying to reflect the huge potential of Ribeira Sacra. The full clusters were foot trodden and fermented in a troncoconic oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in 225-liter barrels and 2,000-liter foudres for 24 months. But the wine has no influence from the wood and is floral and perfumed. It has good grip, fine tannins, moderate ripeness and 14% alcohol, and it's very clean and balanced, with elegance and precision. The best wine from Algueira in recent times. 6,665 bottles were filled in May 2023.
Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux)
From a little-known corner of Galicia, a region of Spain better known for its white wines, this has a lightness of touch, a sense of building energy through the palate, fragrant and juicy with sun-sweetened raspberry, sage and crushed rocks. Balanced, dry but juicy, this is almost impossible to spit out while tasting, delicate yet riveting. First time on the Place from Bodega Adega Algueira, and this is one to look out for. Winemaker Fernando Gonzalez, 3.7ha estate.
Colin Hay (The Drinks Business)
Spicy, floral, fresh – gladioli and patchouli, peony – with a pleasing crushed rock minerality accompanying the figs and dried nuts. There’s a lot of tannin present and the granularity of those tannins is evident. But that gives a good impression of structure, helping to maintain the compact and yet quite fluid profile of the wine over the palate. Just a little reductive at first and a touch dry on the finish. Interesting, distinct and authentic this will find plenty of admirers.
Brand new to the Place de Bordeaux, this is a blend of mostly indigenous varieties; 66% Mencia, 20% Brancellao, 6% Sousón, 4% Caiño and 4% Garnacha Tintorera planted in 3.7 hectares on the steep hills of Doade and Abelada in Galicia. Red berry accents on the nose, white chocolate and blood orange rind. Succulent and supple, this has a lovely bounce and sense of energy and fun to it. An element of sharpness and thrill with herbal-edged strawberries, chalky tannins and minerality too - wet stone nuance giving a metallic bite and long finish of tobacco, liquorice and sour cherries. Clean and clear, pure and precise - really easy drinking with bite and tang. This will find fans. Ageing 24 months in 335l French oak barriques and 2,000l French foudre. Director Fabio González Pérez and winemaker Fernando González Riveiro.
