Tasting notes

Cherry red with a violet rim. The nose is brimming with delicious aromas of red and tropical fruits, with yeasty undertones from the time the wine spends on its lees.

Drink with

Try it with blue fish such as tuna, pasta dishes or cold meats and embutidos.

Production process

Massimo is a wonderful young red wine made from Mencía and Sousón vines planted between 30 and 90 years ago in slate and granite soils on the steep, terraced slopes of the Ribeira Sacra Denominación de Origen in Galicia. The grapes are selected and harvested by hand and undergo a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

About the producer

Half Italian, half Galician, Benedetto Carcieri has spent a lot of his working life travelling Spain and the world selling wines from Galicia. Like many of his colleagues in the wine trade, all that energy and enthusiasm spent selling wine led him one day to the conclusion that the next logical step was to make his own wine. Starting out with his brother Antonio and a few hectares of their own, the Atlantic Galician Wineries project has slowly expanded and now encompasses three of Galicia’s most celebrated appellations: the well-known coastal region of Rías Baixas, home of the Albariño grape, the dramatic terraced landscapes of Ribeira Sacra along the Sil and Miño rivers, and Ribeiro, famous for its centuries-old winemaking traditions and wonderful native white grapes like Treixadura, Torrontés or Godello. 

Massimo is the winery’s flagship red wine, made from a bright, tantalising blend of Mencía with a touch of Sousón.
