D. O. Alella
100% Garnacha negra
|Type of vineyard||
Garnatxa Negra is an organic red wine elaborated with modern methods. Manual harvest of selected grapes and transported in 18kg boxes. After harvesting, grapes are cooled in a special room in order to avoid premature fermentation. Grapes are subjected to a long maceration process during which alcoholic fermentation occurs. Afterwards gently pressed and malolactic fermentation takes place. Delicate cherry colour with bluish tints. Fresh and intense aromas of wild red fruits, raspberries, wild strawberries, plums with soft hint of orange peel. Live and expressive in mouth with fruity aromas and especially red skin plum notes. Straightforward and pleasant on the palate with delicate finish and subtle aftertaste. Wine perfectly describes singular character of Mediterranean garnacha and Alella “terroir”.
