Tipicitat is our special tribute to red Garnacha and Cariñena, for these two grape varieties have traditionally dominated winemaking in our region, the Terra Alta. Only in demanding environments do these varieties give the best of themselves and for that reason they have always been very much part of our history and culture.
Using only grapes harvested from old vines and after rigorous selection at the winery, we achieve with Tipicitat a richly dark wine. It presents a complex range of aromas: mature fruit notes, hints of spices and an underlying minerality.
After ageing in casks for more than one year, this wine is elegant on the palate, concentrated, with mature tannins and a lingering finish. It well complements red meat dishes and roasts.
The grapes are selected in the winery and, after destemming and crushing, the two varieties are vinified separately. They first undergo pre-fermentation maceration until the start of alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. After malolactic fermentation the wine is transferred to 300 litre French oak casks containing a varying proportion of new oak depending on the vintage. After more than 12 months in casks the wine is then bottled.
