At Manuel Moldes' house, wine had always been made for their own consumption but in 2009 Chicho, as everyone calls him, decided to take his passion and hobby a little further and launched Bodegas Fulcro, a garage project (literally) focused on making fresh terroir wines from the Salnés Valley. He keeps a low profile and produces just 30,000 bottles but he is undoubtedly one of the names to bear in mind in the area. He was helped in his beginnings by the legendary Rodri Méndez.
Aliaxe is a blend of 60% Caiño Tinto, 20% Espadeiro, and 20% Loureiro sourced from vineyards grown in clay, schists, and granite soils whose vines range in age from 20 to 70 years. The grapes are de-stemmed and fermented with native yeasts in open tanks where they also macerate for 40 days. The resulting wine ages for 12 months in used 300-liter barrels. Aliaxe is a very personal wine that doesn’t undergo malolactic fermentation in order to retain all its freshness.
