Alicante red wine
A selection of Cabernet Sauvignon, Monastrell and Syrah grapes are aged in barrels for 10/15 months to produce a full-bodied, tannic wine at the right point of ripeness. Gurgu is a crianza red wine of very limited production, fruit of small plots located in the Seta and Travadell valleys. A clear commitment to highlight the value of the trades that phylloxera practically wiped out at the beginning of the 20th century in one of the most traditional wine-growing areas.
Appearance: Ripe cherry red wine with some tile-red glints.
Nose: Powerful aroma, with a background of candied fruit from which emerge creamy notes of oak and sweet toffee (caramel coffee with milk), along with hints of pepper and clove.
Palate: In the mouth it is tasty, with well melted tannins, structured and oily. Complex, long and expressive.
Sharing it with any kind of sausage, cured cheeses, salted meats…
Archaeological evidence suggests that wine production in Valencia dates back more than a thousand years, but the region has never held a particularly prominent place on the world wine map. In the modern era, Valencian wine production has focused on specializing in signature wines, achieving new nuances.
