The grapes come from terraced vines 35 years old on average.
Carefully harvested and vinified, Can Blau 2017 was aged for 12 months in new French oak barrels prior to its bottling.
Decant this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Can Blau has a clean, bright, crimson color with a garnet rim.
This intense Montsant red wine carries some clean aromas of ripe black fruit, jammy fruit and liquorice, with dim remembrances of violets. On the background, some hints of vanilla and clove and notions of undergrowth and garrigue.
A creamy, meaty texture coats some succulent red fruit, with creamy and smoky nuances, mineral notes, and lively tannins that will mellow over time. This Crianza red wine from Can Blau has a good acidity and a long, intense finish.
