Montrodó Negre 2018

Tasting notes

Red wine dark-cherry coloured, clear and bright with violet tones.

On the nose, it offers an intense bouquet of fresh red fruits and wild berries, redcurrant, cassis that evokes sweeties and with Mediterranean aromatic herbs notes.

On entering the mouth is fresh and light. Flavourful wine with a good acidity and a pleasant finish.

Vinification process

After being cold-settled for 12-24 hours, the wine is fermented at a controlled temperature of 24-26ºC, doing daily pump-ups.

The period of maceration-fermentation lasts around 12-15 days to obtain an alive and fresh product, taking care and keeping the grapes varieties character.
