Gémina was the original name of the town Jumilla in Roman times.
Red semi-oaked wine, 100% Monastrell European Root, 13,5 % ABV
Gémina Monastrell is elaborated from Monastrell selected grapes, only coming from European Root Vineyards (pie franco) older than 40 years. These vineyards are pre-phylloxeral , older than forty years, with a very low production. (less than 1 kg per vine).
Grapes are harvested in plastic boxes of 14 kg each, in order to avoid damages to the fruit. They are hand selected and carefully handled in our cellar. Once in the winery, they stayed in stainless steel deposits of 10,000 liters, during a short maceration phase in order to extract tannings and color. After the transfers and once the malolactic fermentation is done, the wine is ageing in new American oak barrels and French oak barrels for 3 months in our conditioned crianza cellar.
Very intense red lively tones. Deep ripe fruit aroma, perfectly combining light oak aromas of the new oak. Very powerful, complex with several different sensations, really smooth with a long end.
All kind of spicy meats: red and white meats, rice and meat paella, hard cheeses, beef stew, vegetables, roast duck and grilled chicken.
