Sanamaro Sobre Lías

Sanamaro Sobre Lías is a wine from the historic Pazo de San Mauro estate made with a selection of the finest Albariño and Loureiro grapes.

A complex and elegant wine that stands out with its minerality and voluptuousness, the result of 6 months sur lie ageing in French oak vats.


Sanamaro Sobre Lías is made using the best Albariño and Loureiro grapes, harvested by hand from the oldest plots on our vineyards, “La Fraga” and “Los Bancales”, 35 years old on average.

The vineyard stretches over terraces of boulders which descend towards the river Miño, creating a natural amphitheatre with perfect conditions and exposure to the midday sun.

Winemaking and Ageing

We select the best bunches from the “La Fraga” and “Los Bancales” plots, first at the vineyard and then at the winery. Depending on their characteristics, we vinify a third of the grapes in whole bunches, which provides freshness to the wine, and two thirds are destemmed and cold-macerated for several hours before pressing to extract the maximum intensity of the aromas.

In addition, an important part of the coupage is fermented and aged on the lees in small French oak vats, providing body and structure to the final assemblage.  Lastly, there is another part which is vinified in cocciopesto amphoras, adding extra cripsness to the blend.

Sanamaro is aged for 6 months over lees, with manual bâtonnage, followed by a year’s ageing in the bottle.
