Fruit for ‘Sentidiño’ is sourced from three subzones. The different subzones, with an altitude range of 20-200 metres above sea level, produce wines of subtle diversity and balance, enabling Carlos to make a stylistically consistent blend. Val do Salnés, situated directly on the coast, produces the most aromatic Albariños due to cooler night temperatures and Atlantic breezes. Further inland, sites in Condado do Tea experience higher ripening temperatures, around 30-34°C, and produce lower aromatic profiles, but fullerbodied wines. In Ribeira do Ulla, the coolest and driest subzone, the wines display greater structure and acidity. The vines are guyot trained with a vine density of 1,000-1,5000 plants per hectare to ensure good air circulation and sun exposure for even, healthy ripening. Their vineyards have been managed sustainably for over 30 years.
