''Anjou pear, melon and tangerine scents, with a suggestion of chalky minerals. Offering lemon pith, pear skin and herb flavors that flesh out on the back half. Shows good clarity on the persistent finish.'' 90 Points, Vinous Media
''Anjou pear, melon and tangerine scents, with a suggestion of chalky minerals. Taut and nervy on the palate, offering lemon pith, pear skin and herb flavors that flesh out on the back half. Shows good clarity on the persistent finish, which features repeating mineral and floral notes.'' 90 Points, Vinous Media
"The varietal and fruit-driven 2019 Montenovo Godello has aromas of white fruit, flowers and a balsamic twist and a medium-bodied palate with a touch of sweetness on the finish.'' Wine Advocate Magazine
“Gorgeous Godello from one of Galicia’s most fascinating producers. Vibrant in every way. This sets the bar!” Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier
Valdesil is one of the leading producers of Godello in the Galician appellation of Valdeorras. From the oldest vines of Godello on earth. Planted some 136 years ago! Their Montenovo is always crisp and bright, with fruit well balanced by the slate minerality. A racy wine with a chalky, almost Chablis-like tangy personality and invigorating notes of nectarine & white flowers. A superb example of Godello.
