D.O. Alicante (Valencia)
Triga is a red wine produced by Bodegas Volver in Alicante. This winery, belonging to the group of Jorge Ordoñez was founded in 2004 by Jorge Ordoñez and winemaker Rafael Cañizarez.
Triga is made from the Monastrell (85%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) varieties. The grapes come from old vineyards located in the municipalities of Salinas and Pinoso (Alicante).
The vineyards are planted on glass on fossilized limestone soils, at an altitude of 700-750m above the sea.
For processing, after a traditional fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrels. Later Triga is aged for 20 months in French oak.
