La Forcalla de Antonia | Rafael Cambra

The Forcallà  grape was common in Valencia before phylloxera, but being late ripening, with lower alcohol and colour it was largely replaced by Monastrell when farmers replanted. However in this Mediterranean climate where temperatures in summer can soar to 40 degrees, the varietal’s lower alcohol is now seen as a virtue, giving elegant floral reds.
