Product Description
Details

A lively Spanish red wine produced by Masia Can Mayol, Amaltea de Loxarel is produced in the Penedès region.

Made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), the vines are farmed following organic and biodynamic techniques.

Picked by hand, the grapes were first cold-macerated and then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks. After that, the wine completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 10 months in Hungarian oak barrels. Finally, Amaltea de Loxarel 2019 was blended and bottled.

This is a lively, gentle organic red wine from Penedès.

A peculiar wine. A naked, rustic Bordeaux blend. Refreshingly funky.
