Pepe Mendoza Casa Agrícola Giró de Abargues

Bodega: Pepe Mendoza

Giró de Abargues is a red wine from the DO Alicante made with 100% giro (indigenous grape variety). Once the best grapes have been selected to make, they are vinified with minimal intervention. Firstly, they undergo a spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and then the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.
Beautiful expression of scrubland, wet land, shady hills. A powerful palate that reminds us of iron soils and blood notes; Very noble tannins with balance giving it length and an elegant depth that will allow it to be a long-aging wine.
Giró, a unique variety that has united the Marina Alta since the 1500s with Mallorca and Sardinia, where it is also found. Sensitive to Oidium and with a very low production that was losing place to more productive varieties, today it is a small treasure that we must take care of and present as it deserves.

Intense aroma of red fruit and touches of cherries with typical  spicy notes of the giro variety. Full flavor, half body, with a long aftertaste.
