Overview

While it is tempting to view the least expensive Cava from a producer as the “house style” for a property it is perhaps not the case for Gramona. With more time in bottle before disgorgement it combines the richness of its Mediterranean climate, the freshness of its cepage and the oxidative notes of its elevage. Imperial is finished with an <8g/L dosage from a century old Solera maintained and nurtured in the cellars of the estate.
