According to Robert Parker, “Calatayud has good potential, perhaps is the zone capable of producing the finest, most elegant wines in Aragón.” A third generation of vine growers work with some of the region’s most spectacular and oldest vineyards thanks to their tremendous dedication to family vineyards, generation after generation. So that, Marqués de Montañana comes from certified old Garnacha vines located in the south of the appellation where bush vines are planted on slate at higher altitude (+800
metres high). True hidden hems older than 100 years that offer the best fruit quality you could find in Aragon.
Marqués de Montañana brands those Spanish wines coming from the old bush vines that have been growing for centuries in the mythic red hills of Calatayud. Two Aragonian-autochthonous grapes give shape to the wine range: Viura (white wine) and Garnacha (young and oaked reds).
Lusty, sweet, ripe red fruit – kirsch, and cranberry -. Nose of cedar, spice box, pepper. Medium-body with a solid core of fruit, good depth, and light tannins.
Joy is found in the depth.
We work with only the best old bush vines of Garnacha. Selected grapes are hand-picked and carefully carried to the winery. Upon their arrival, the fruit is
destemmed and separated from its wood. Once grapes are free of stems, they’re transferred to traditional concrete tanks where they undergo pre-fermentative maceration during 7 days, in order to extract their varietal and terroir-based character. Alcoholic fermentation takes place during the next 20 days at stable temperature of 22-28ºC. Immediately after, they experience a second process of 3-week maceration and pressing at low pressure with the aim of triggering the maximum color potential of their own skins. After this step between fermentations, the wine is transferred back to the concrete tanks to complete malolactic fermentation. Elaboration ends up
with ageing during 6 months in oak barrels, plus 2 more months in concrete tanks where, in contact with its own yeasts, it acquires full roundness and its unique character.
Perfect to complete your lunch or dinner events. Pairs with protein-rich foods such as red meat and fatty foods like strong cheese. Serve at 16-18ºC. Drink now or within the next 3 years.
