Vi Ranci Dolç Somdinou
Rancio wines are vins de liqueur which, far from going off or turning sour due to the effect of oxygen, turn rancid. What favours this positive oxidation is their high natural alcohol content and the high sugar content of the grape. This is a rancio made with Garnacha Blanca and aged on lees over 50 years old. You simply have to try it.
Type of wine
Sweet rancio wine
Designation of origin
Do Terra Alta
Style of Wine
Intense golden-amber colour, very elegant.
Hints of honey, nuts, dried fruit.
Very unctuous, toasted nuts, hints of bitter orange peel.
The Terra Alta rancio wines are another of the gems that winegrowers have preserves and passed on to new generations. Those barrels in the corner are a treasure trove. Difficult to explain, so they need to be Tastinged.
Between 16 and 18 degrees
Nuts, cheeses, chocolates, candied fruit.
Until recently, many people thought that rancio wine was like something that was stored in the cask in the corner and only used for barbecues. If you haven't done so yet, which we can't believe, it's time to leave certain prejudices behind by Tastinging this rancio wine from the Cooperativa Agrícola de Gandesa. And, above all, be bold and don't just stick to desserts. Savour with a good platter of cheeses (you should eat them from soft to hard) and with a little pumpkin jam.
In the vineyard
Made with grapes from vineyards over 60 years old, with poor soil and low yield.
In the winery
White wine aged in oak and chestnut barrels, on lees more than 50 years old.
Cooperativa De Gandesa
On 19 February 1919, José Maria Sierras, founder and first chairman of the cooperative, and Jaume Fontanet, member of the board, commissioned the architect César Martinell, a disciple of the great architects Josep Puig i Cadafalch and Antoni Gaudi, to construct the Bodega Cooperativa de Gandesa, then called the Gandesa Agricultural Cooperation Union.
Do Terra Alta
The so-called Customs of Orta (1296) and Miravet (1319) already regulated the sale of wine from the region. But it wasn't until the late nineteenth century that winegrowing became widespread. With the phylloxera plague, the demand from producers for DO Terra Alta  grapes increased, first from the French and then from the neighbouring regions that today are DO Tarragona and DOQ Priorat. In the early twentieth century, the organisation of cooperatives was a revolution.
