100% Red Grenache
Alella Vinícola is the cellar whose wines have brought renown to the town of Alella since 1906. We currently produce, make and bottle wines and cavas in two designated origins,namely D.O. ALELLA and D.O. CAVA.
Like the cellar itself, most of the vineyards we use are located in the centre of the town of Alella, the heart of the designated origin, 15 kilometres to the north of the city of Barcelona. We market wines, rich wines,sweet wines and cavas under different brandnames, such as MARFIL, IVORI, VALLMORA and VIOLETA. Our wines are characterised by the Mediterranean climate, the area's singular geological nature and the striking traits of the varieties typical of our designated origin.
Pale copper color, very attractive and elegant. The nose presents very clean and delicate aromas of red fruit (cherry, strawberry, raspberry), citrus, fresh grass. In the mouth the bubble is crisp, well integrated into the wine, refreshing and accentuating all the characteristics of the product. A well-present structure and a creamy touch caused by aging on lees are noted. The flavors are fresh and pleasant to white and red fruit, with a long, sweet finish.
