This wine was inspired by the clear starry night skies in La Mancha. Félix Solís wanted to create a wine that would capture the pleasure-loving, life-affirming spirit of the Spanish people. He named it Albali after the brightest star in Aquarius.

  • Technical Information

    The ripening process of the grapes is strictly controlled while on the fields to determine the optimum harvesting moment that yields grapes with a perfect balance of sugar content and acidity. Then, the grapes undergo a cold maceration period for 3 or 4 days. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for up to 8 days never over 25ºC. The result is an elegant, well-structured wine that is designed to be consumed young.
