Breca 2014 is one of the boldest expressions of a Grenache coming from the region of Calatayud available on the market. That mountainous, harsh region in the northern Spanish region of Aragón is believed by many to be the cradle of Grenache.
The grapes used to produce this red wine come from old vines planted between 1925 and 1945 in very poor soils. The plants are located at an altitude of 900 metres above sea level and grow under extremely hard climatic conditions with great temperature differences between daytime and nighttime.
Manually harvested, the grapes were selected at the vineyard and also in the facilities of the Breca winery. Then they were fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months.
We strongly suggest that you decant the wine a minimum of 30 minutes before you drink it.

Intense, bright, clean cherry-coloured robe with a ruby rim.
This Spanish red wine Breca shows intense notes of ripe black fruit, combined with dim touches of vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa and moka. As it opens, the wine offers notions of violets and some liquorice undertones.
Meaty, intense and yummy, this red coats the palate with velvety notes of blackberries and cranberries, black chocolate and liquor-infused fruit. Great tension and good acidity. Ripe tannins and long, spicy finish.
|Our personal opinion||
Breca 2014 from Calatayud is a rugged delight. A vibrant wine from an ancestral land.
