Product Description

Produced following the old winemaking traditions of DO Montsant, Maria Ganxa is a single varietal Carignan coming from vines planted in clayey soils.

After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were brought to the facilities of Celler Pascona, where they were selected and destemmed.

Gently pressed, this Spanish red wine was fermented in 5,000-litre truncated cone-shaped stainless steel deposits, with frequent pump-overs and punch-downs.

Finally, Maria Ganxa 2018 underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for about 3 months on its lees.

This a very versatile red wine from Montsant.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Maria Ganxa de Pascona has a clean, medium-low cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.


This varietal unoaked Carignan from the DO Montsant is fruity and inviting. Aromas of red and black fruit, some subtle floral nuances, and some hints of wet earth, flowers and spices.


This young red wine from Celler Pascona has the freshness and liveliness typical of Carignan. Cocoa, bilberries, flowers and some mineral remembrances. It has a round body and a very good acidity. Long, fresh finish.

It seems that carinena is becoming sort of hype. Well, judging by this wine I understand why. No oak, very precise, rock solid, super fresh. Review by CIA Asset (Posted on 18/01/2018)
