Brothers and sister Marco, Richard and Alejandra Sanz run this certified organic estate in Rueda, South of Valladolid. The estate has 160 ha in production (including 30 ha of pre-phylloxera vines). The soil-type consist of sandy clay and are covered with pebbles in most part. Hand-harvesting, natural yeasts and low yields are some of the techniques used to produce the trade-mark Menade style of pure and expressive wines.
Nosso comes from the vineyard Finca Menade, in Rueda, a plot of Verdejo planted on limestone – clay and stony soils and a plenty of pebbles. Prevention treatments are used, like herbal infusions and whey. The grapes are hand-picked and brought in the winery where they are rigorously sorted. Indigenous yeasts starts the fermentation, and the wine undergo a malolactic fermentation, adding weight, poise and complexity to its naturally expressive character.
