This is a wine made in Alella Vinícola since the beginning of the XXth century, known by the name of "Violeta"(Violet), the colour of the original bottle capsule.
It is only made in years when Red Grenache reaches the proper ripeness for producing this such personal sweet red wine. Ageing is of an oxidative type in the form of "soleras and criaderas", which ensures the organoleptic regularity with the passing of time. The different years are gradually put together thanks to the
dynamic ageing, and, through the years, this wine acquires its own personality.
Very few bottles are produced per year to ensure the wine's quality, exceptionality and ideal ageing. This is done directly from the "soleras", with no type of clarifying or cold treatment that could alter its organoleptic characteristics. This is why, in
these wines, we may find sediments that do not affect their quality in any way.
It is of a ripe cherry colour with highlights that indicate its long ageing process. By nose, it has an average intensity with spiced, very ripe red fruit, chocolate and somewhat balsamic notes. On the palate, it is strong , liqueurous , with good acidity which does not make it heavy, and which reminds us of the aromas found by nose. It has a significant structure and a long after-taste where we again find notes of oxidative ageing. It is a good combination with different types of cheeses and chocolates.
