In The Cellar
The basis for the powerful Pago De Los Balagueses Garnacha Tintorera from Valencia are grapes from the Garnacha grape variety. Clearly, the Pago De Los Balagueses Garnacha Tintorera is also determined by more than just the soil Utiel-Requena DO. This Spaniard can literally be described as an Old World wine that is exceptionally impressive. After the grape harvest, the grapes are immediately taken to the press house. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. After its end, the Pago De Los Balagueses Garnacha Tintorera is aged for another 10 months in oak barrels.
