The Clos Fontá Vi de Finca from Mas d 'en Gil is a profound, expressive red wine cuvée from the Grenache (60%) and Cariñena (40%) grape varieties. This wine is grown in the Catalan Priory in Spain.
In the glass shimmers in dark cherry red with purple highlights. The nose enjoys an intense bouquet that reveals aromas of red and black berry fruits - from blackberry to blackcurrant to boysenberry and raspberry. The aromas of the nose are accompanied by balsamic and mineral notes. The lively, juicy and expressive character skilfully flatters the palate. The soft tannin structure is wonderfully present and leads to a very long lasting finale with mineral nuances.
Vinification of the Mas d 'en Gil Clos Fontá Vi de Finca
The grapes for this Spanish red wine grow on vines about 60 years old on quartz and slate-containing soils in a steep slope (300-400 m altitude).
The harvest takes place in the period from August to September. The grapes are carefully selected by hand and already selected in the vineyard. The harvested material is gently pressed in the wine cellar and the resulting mash is fermented in open large wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks. Finally, this wine rests for 14 months in French oak barrels. This red wine gains its strong colour, its wonderful variety of aromas and its distinctive yet soft tannins.
