Mas Rodó – Montonega
Montonega. D.O. Penedès
MAS RODÓ is a pioneer in working with the Montonega variety, an autochthonous grape that develops spontaneously from Parellada strains, generating a distinct phenotype with character. The Montonega is a small, scarcely planted and reddish grape that spontaneously produces around 4500kg per hectare, and with which we produce a frank, fresh and unique wine. The remarkable thing about this wine is not the fruit but the aromatic herbs, the fennel, the dried fruit, and a particular minerality and salinity, all defining elements of the environment at MAS RODÓ. We keep it a year in the bottle, refining it and balancing its acidity. It’s a true declaration of our principles connected to the land and our way of understanding wine.

Crisp and bright, pale yellow with greenish hues. Frank, intense and fresh aroma with notes of white fruits. I live in the mouth, fresh, balanced and fragrant with soft and delicate retronasal.
The Montonega pairs with all kinds of seafood (especially oysters) and fresh fish, sushi and sashimi, rice dishes, soups and smoked foods, and is also ideal for cocktail receptions, aperitifs and accompanying snacks.
