Vicente Gandia is a winery since 1885 and with a Mediterranean character. Due to the innovative character that has always characterized their winery and after many years of experience in the sector exporting wines, they wanted to go a step further and in 1971 they were the first Valencian winery to market bottled wine under their Castillo de Liria brand, which almost fifty years later still remains one of their most iconic brands. Today, they have a presence in 90 countries on 5 continents, they are the largest winery in the Valencian Community. In addition, in 2014 they were awarded as the best Spanish winery by the prestigious AWC Vienna international competition. That same year, the World Association of Wine and Spirits Writers and Journalists included them in its ranking of the 50 best wineries in the world. In 2018, the European Council of Enogastronomical Brotherhoods (CEUCO) awarded the “Aurum Europa Excellente” award to Vicente Gandía as “Best European Winery”.
Thousands of years ago, Greeks and Romans already used ceramic jars for the production, transport and conservation of wine. Ceramic Monastrell combines its aging in jars with aging in French oak barrels. The aging in the jar provides a lot of freshness and expressiveness while the aging in the barrel provides great finesse and elegance to our wines, while allowing them to be very respectful of the specific characteristics of the Valencian terroir.
Ceramic, from the ancient Greek keramiké (‘made of clay’), is a wine from old Monastrell vineyards in strictly dry land and aged for 11 months in oak barrels and refined in clay pots.
Intense red wine, dark with bright edges. On the nose, the aromas of ripe plum, liquorice and notes of coconut and vanilla stand out. In the mouth it is broad, robust, with sweet tannins and elegant acidity. Leaving the memory in the mouth of these very ripe red fruits.
