Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels from the forests of Allier
The "Pagos" of Secastilla Valley are located in the northeast corner of Somontano and meet a special Mediterranean microclimate. In stony slopes above 700 meters above sea level, we have recovered very old vines Grenache, traditional variety Secastilla Valley. The relative altitude and special orientation makes it an area with many hours of sunshine which promotes ripening. This whole area is dry and sandy loam soils are quite stony.
The Valley Grenache Secastilla gathered manually in small boxes and in optimal ripening conditions during the first week of October. Vintage was macerated prior to fermentation for two days. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out for 8 days between 25 and 28 ° C, maceration extending to 15 days. Later, he malolactic fermentation. This wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels Allier forest, filtered to pass bottle in late December and rested them until January.
Appearance: In it we find a deep ruby color with violet tones
On the nose: A powerful but delicate nose acid type and complex aromas that combine the freshness of russet, noble earthy tones, sweet liqueur filled chocolates, licorice and mineral background.
On the palate: In the mouth, after a soft attack, we found an immediate explosion where we observed a dense, intense and fleshy wine with a remarkably long finish that make it unforgettable. Surely distinct one Garnacha.
The Secastilla is a very different style he usually does Somontano wine. The Garnacha height offers an extraordinarily seductive wine.
