TOLO do Xisto is the new project born from the collaboration of Coca i Fitó and the Galician winery and winemaker, Andrea Obenza within Designation of Origin Ribeira Sacra. TOLO do Xisto went on sale in December 2014. The production of the first crop is limited to 3,700 bottles. The name TOLO do Xisto (“crazy for the blackboard” in Spanish) tries to define the great effort and love for the land, necessary for winemaking on the slopes of the Sil River. Coca i Fito began the project in 2013, in the cozy cellar of Vilachá of Salvadur in Lugo. The wine is made from Mencia grapes coming from two vineyards in the area of Vilachá and Sober. This wine certainly tries to evoke the sensation of the soil and the environment present in the Ribeira Sacra area. This wine is a medium ruby color. To the nose, it offers the impression and intensity of berries, fresh red fruits and plums, with notes of forest herbal and hot spices. It certainly offers a pretty floral sensation. When you first open the bottle the presence of the fruits becomes more evident. When you taste it, you will have a surprise when you experience the intensity of this wine against its medium body. Acidity is alive and balanced by the sweetness of the fruit. You will also find acidic notes of cherries and raspberries. It has soft tannins that complement the structure of this wine with a good persistent finish. This red Galician wine is surprisingly good with seafood and it pairs really nice also with baked chicken and turkey.
