The “Colección de Toneles Centenarios” company was born from an extraordinary treasure: the barrel room of the Ferrero Wineries, an old wine-producing winery in Alicante, located in the city of Cañada, Alicante. From the house's historic vineyards, planted in the 1960s, with a fine sandy soil, just outside the Alicante town of Canyada, here comes an extraordinary glass of red wine. The Luis XIV Ánforas with its local grape varieties (Monastrell (60%), Arcos (30%) and Bonincaire (10%), the wine is true to its origins. The vineyard has a soil of sandy loam, with a large proportion of calcareous sand. is worked sustainably and with minimal intervention.This wine is aged for 4-6 months in ceramic amphorae.The Amphora uses clay from Villarrobledo baked in old-fashioned ovens, where the flames are fueled by wood, giving the amphora an inviting toasty taste The amphorae have no coating and have a capacity of 500 liters (50%) and 225 liters (50%).Amphora is a very old way of making and storing wine and is now rightly on the rise again. the advantages of the porosity of the oak barrels without the wooden aromas affecting the wine, so pure and only the fruit

The Luis XIV Ánforasis bright ruby ​​red with violet hues from Monastrell's penetrating color theme. In the nose an intense freshness in fine harmony with the characteristic fruit expression of Monastrell, Arcos and Bonicaire. On the palate, the purity and freshness of the fruit is revealed and unfolds as a light, velvety but persistent red wine. Medium-bodied with fine, elegant tannins.
