Product Description
Details

The red wine Massaluca Tinto is produced by bodega Massaluca - Vins de Relat from vineyards situated in La Pobla de Massaluca, the only village in DO Terra Alta in close proximity to the Ebro river.

This blended Spanish red wine is made from the traditional varieties Grenache, which takes the main part, and Samsó (Carignan).

The grapes were traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. After that, Massaluca Tinto 2020 was transferred into Central Europan oak barrels and aged for a period of 6 months. The wine was gently filtered and clarified before bottling.

This expressive red wine from Terra Alta will pair well with BBQ'd meats, semi-cured cheeses and risottos.
