Wine characteristicsSweet red wine made with 100% Mataró grapes, a variety that takes its name from the capital of the region. Grapes are picked in an over-ripened stage when they have a high concentration of sugar due to dehydration. In order to extract as much color as possible the maceration takes place in stainless steal tanks during 2 months. The must is pumped over a 2-3 times per day, to help extraction. After a careful and light pressing, the wine is aged in French oak barrels. The wine is then bottled unfiltered after a mild process of stabilization.
