Alella Vinícola is the cellar whose wines have brought renown to the town of Alella since 1906. We currently produce, make and bottle wines and cavas in two designated origins,namely D.O. ALELLA and D.O. CAVA.
Like the cellar itself, most of the vineyards we use are located in the centre of the town of Alella, the heart of the designated origin, 15 kilometres to the north of the city of Barcelona. We market wines, rich wines,sweet wines and cavas under different brandnames, such as MARFIL, IVORI, VALLMORA and VIOLETA. Our wines are characterised by the Mediterranean climate, the area’s singular geological nature and the striking traits of the varieties typical of our designated origin.
The grapes come from Mas Coll vineyard where the bunches are selected for producing this wine. Macerations are not very long to avoid a wine with too much structure. Neither is a very long ageing process ought. This lasts for 18 months in 500 litres casks, 6 months in inox and 12 months aged in bottle.
Cherry-coloured, with an intense, fruity (red fruits), balsamic,very varietal aroma with ginger nuances. A round, meaty mouth with a medium structure, a ripe polished tannin, fresh. A finish with toasted, liquorice nuances.
