Ex Arena is Latin for “From the Sand,” an homage to the terroir from which this wine originates. The Ex Arena vines are located on Villafranchian soil and on a 40-metre-deep bed of sea sediment and alluvial deposits. Besides offering the vines extraordinary drainage, this soil is perfect for low-vigour vines that yield small quantities of grapes with great concentration and complexity, obviously the key to a great terroir. In these outstanding conditions, Grenache forms expressive fruit aromas with spicy sweetness and roundness reminiscent of a Châteauneuf-du-Pape, combined with a surprisingly fine, fresh, spicy mouth and soft tannins, which makes Ex Arena unique in the world of Grenache wines.

Ex Arena can be paired with a wide range of Mediterranean dishes, lamb stew, chicken tajine, even strawberries or chocolate cake - or enjoyed on its own. Ex Arena develops remarkably after 24 hours. It can be drunk now or aged for up to 8 years.
