Pago Cativo O Forte
Blanco O Forte
The Ribeiro origin is located in meridional Galicia, in the northwestern edge of the province of Ourense, in the confluences of the valleys formed by the Miño, Avia and Arnoia rivers. The peculiar climate is favoured by natural barriers and the situation in southern Galicia, which protects the territory of sub-Atlantic squalls and provides an Oceanic-Mediterranean transition climate, so it’s humid and average temperatures of 14.5 °C annual average. The characteristics between the Oceanic and Mediterranean climate allow the fruit of the vines to ripen, preserving aroma and acidity. The wines of this designation are a series of combinations of exquisite fruity and floral scents, which often surprise to be made with traditional indigenous varieties and to have a strong personality that makes it incomparable.
