RATINGS

WineBid Tasting Team

Deep garnet core to a ruby rim. Black and purple fruits with leather, black pepper and oak. Fabulous pizza/pasta wine. Pairings: Pizza, pasta, chacuterie, Italian cheeses.

Winemaker

Intense cherry color with violet edge, very dark...black fruit aromas with spicy hints and black olive, characteristic of the Shiraz variety. On the palate, the toasted oak is very well balanced. Good structure and a fresh, elegant finish…

The company was founded in Valencia in 1885 by Vicente Gandia, a wine merchant, and by the early 20th century it was exporting wine throughout Europe. Today the company is owned and managed by the fourth generation of the Gandia family and there is a 490-acre family estate.

REGION

Spain, The Levant, Valencia

The Levant refers to the eastern region of Spain that follows the Mediterranean coast. The word literally means the “east coast.” Officially there are two autonomous regions within Levant, Communidad Valenciana and Murcia. The appellations within the Levant are Alicante, Utiel-Requena, Valencia, Bullas, Jumilla and Yecla. Once an area where winemaking was strictly utilitarian and mostly done to satisfy bottlers of bulk wines, the region is today home to numerous innovative wine projects, including one by Australian winemaking star Chris Ringland. Red wines from this region are made from Monastrell, which is known in southern France as Mourvèdre. The reds of this region tend to be intensely purple/red, with black fruit flavors and strong tannins.
