The ‘recent’ history of wine at the Pago Casa Gran estate began at least 300 years ago. There they have preserved an ancient wine cellar from those times in the Casa Benasal building. Manuela Galbis, the founder’s mother, reinitiated wine production at Pago Casa Gran during the 1960’s.
The Casa Benasal Elegant combines the trend for light body, flavourful wines with the uniqueness of the estate. A part of this wine has been matured in concrete vats while the other part goes into oak barrels.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured.
