D.O. Valencia (Valencia)
Parotet is a red wine from Valencia prepared by Celler del Roure. The estates of the winery are located in Moixent and the Valley of the Alcusses, southeast of the autonomous community of Valencia.
Parotet is a blend of mandó and arcos, originating from vineyards of 6 hectares with sandy loam soil, located at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level.
The development of Parotet begins with a manual harvest in boxes of 15 kg. There is then a native yeast fermentation and maceration takes place for 20 days. The malolactic fermentation is done in clay pots with the lees.
Finally, this wine undergoes a 12-month aging in buried clay jars of 2800 litres.
Parotet is a pioneer of the Celler del Roure. This is their first wine aged in earthenware jars and the first time that mandó is the protagonist.
