Very appealing wine because of its yellow bright colour, with some elegant greenish hues. On the nose, beautiful fruit flavors such as lemon, peach, green apple with some hits of honey.On the mouth, it’s a full body wine, very rounded. Recalling notes of mandarin, peaches and lemon.

GARGALO GODELLO 2019 receives a GOLD BACCHUS. The most recent vintage of GARGALO GODELLO has been awarded with the prestigious GOLD BACCHUS. This is the only wine from Spain’s Monterrei Appellation to achieve this award at this year’s BACCHUS International Wine Competition. The Gargalo winemaking project was founded in 1998 by prominent Spanish fashion designer Roberto Verino in the northern Spanish appellation of Monterrei. From the initial inception of Gargalo, Verino has strived to produce wines that translate their origin by utilizing a harmonious blend of vineyards and their environment. He uses indigenous varietals as an invaluable asset of the region’s legendary vineyards and produces wines guided by terrior to accentuate a truly authentic character. Bodegas Riojanas, also a family project, closely relates with Verino’s passionate vision. They too have strived to make regionally expressive wines in Rioja for 130 years following with their other wineries in Rueda, Toro and Rías Baixas. Their common paths brought both winemakers together in 2019 with an agreement by which Riojanas would manage sales of Gargalo wines in Spain and abroad. For Verino, elegance is born from the terrior allowing nature to do its share alone: “Whether with wine or with fashion, I strive to express the essence of my creations. Neither wine nor people must wear uniforms made by trends”, the designer explains. So is GARGALO GODELLO, elegant, different, complex and aromatic, with hints of honey and nuts on the nose and a luxurious palate marked with citrus flavors. “Gargalo” means ‘canyon’ in Galician, the language spoken in the Monterrei region. This ravine was formed by the Támega River in the Monterrei Valley, named ‘the excellent Valley’ by the Roman legions which planted the first grapevines and built the first cellars in the area. The Godello vineyards located in this scarcely known region produces some of Spain’s most brilliant white wines.
