A Rúa's winery Alan de Val has launched A Costiña, the only wine made exclusively from grapes Brancellao that exists in the market. Backed by Valdeorras Guarantee of Origin, this is a wine made Brancellao, that after a passage through French oak barrels for four months, has relied on hold a year before going on sale.

Final production of A Costiña 2007 is 1,000 bottles, which have been released for a higher price to 30 euros. It comes in a burgundy bottle of 75 cl, in an individual case.

According to the tasting notes, wine is a "full-bodied, well covered, bright red and purple trim. Sweet aroma to red fruits jam and licorice, with hints of violet flowers and almond blossom. In mouthfeel is broad, good acidity and well integrated tannins with a long, mineral aftertaste. It is a wine "with a personality that will evolve well in bottle over the next five years" and is presented to accompany perfect 'all kinds of meats, especially stews and game, as experts say.

The recovery of this wine joins others in which it works within Valdeorras Guarantee of Origin as making toast.
