35% Grenache, 35% Carignan and 30% Tempranillo from 10 - 45 years old vines, vinified separately. The wine is aged in American oak casks for about 6 months, followed by coupage and then 5 months aging in bottles.
This dream started to materialize during the Spring of 1998 when we introduced our first wine, Giné Giné 1997. The winename consists of our grandfather two last names; he was a wine grower and was twice elected President of the Cooperativa Agrícola Falsetenca. These are the wines we present to you with pleasure and pride. Enjoy them and thus participate in the development of this long family history.
Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.
Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
