Area of Production: The Denominación de Origen Protegida Valencia is near the Mediterranean coast in the East of the country where the altitude varies between 250m and 1000m. The climate is warm with strong influences from the Mediterranean sea. For centuries grapes have been grown in the chalk clay soil which together with the constant presence of strong sunlight produces fruity wines with a good structure and smooth tannins.
Winemaking: The grapes of each variety are carefully selected, destemmed and gently pressed. Vinified separately in stainless steel tanks with a prolonged maceration on the skins, using selected yeasts. Fermentation is started slowly at a low temperature (10-12ºC) until the end of the fermentation at 25-26ºC. Malolactic fermentation follows. The wines are then blended together. Aged for minimum of a year, in new American oak barrels.
Serving Suggestions: Audentia Reserva is a prestigious wine ideal to accompany a variety of gourmet dishes, meats, roasts, cured cheeses. Serve at a temperature of 16 and 18ºC. This wine should be opened at least 30 minutes before serving.
