Corolilla Assigned to Opici Wines
National Importer Adds To Eclectic Spanish Portfolio
Opici Wines, a New Jersey based, family-owned and -operated wine importer and producer, has been assigned the national importer of Corolilla wines. Opici Wines will begin by importing Corolilla Crianza, made from 100% Bobal .
Bobal is a grape indigenous to the Denominación de Origen (DO) production area of Valencia, located along the eastern coast of Spain in the region of Valencia. The thick-skinned, flavorful grape is resistant to phylloxera and requires a hot growing season. Previously used for bulk wine production, Spanish winemakers have recently discovered that Bobal can be a high quality, long-lived wine when picked from old vines with strict yields. Corolilla Crianza is made from old-vine Bobal in limestone-rich vineyards that are situated at an elevation of 700 meters above sea level and enjoy summer breezes from the nearby Mediterranean Sea.
"We are excited to be introducing Corolilla Crianza," says Don Opici, Managing Director of Opici Wines. "We believe that Bobal is one of the undiscovered gems of Spain, and poised to become one of the country's best values. It fits perfectly with our other Spanish offerings."
Corolilla joins a portfolio that already includes Albet i Noya of Penedes; Dominio De Tares and Dominio Dostares of Bierzo; Dinastia Vivanco of Rioja; Pazos de Lusco of Rias Baixas; Mas Igneus of Priorat; and Casa de la Ermita of Jumilla.
"People who already know us for our Italian brands," explains Opici, "are coming to realize that we also have great values from other countries as well. Corolilla is a fine addition to what is already a strong selection of Spanish wines."
Corolilla Crianza is available nationwide at a suggested retail price of $12.99.
