Argillo-ferrous soils

Common in Valdeorras, especially in the higher areas of A Rúa, Vilamartín and Rubiá. They retain water extremely well, which can lead to the formation of pools and, therefore, cold soil. The best-quality wines, from this type of soil, come from clays mixed with lime or silica. When these soils have a high clay level they are usually rich in nutrients, making for a good and balanced production.
