Rojo Clásico is a tribute to the vermouth made in Catalonia since the second half of the 19 century and originally enjoyed every Sunday at noon.
The base wine for this vermouth is made with Macabeo and Xarel·lo grapes from the Padró family's own vineyards. After the first winter, Padró's "special red vermouth herb formula" is added to make a base coupage which is then left to rest and evolve in casks for between nine and 12 months.
