This elegant Spanish red wine is produced by the Huguet de Can Feixes winery.
The vinification of Can Feixes Negre Tradició was meticulous. Each variety was separately processed in stainless steel tanks.
After that, they were also separately aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Then Can Feixes Negre Tradició 2009 was blended and aged in tanks for a short period of time to allow for the perfect blending of the four wines.
Finally, this wine from Penedès was aged for 36 months in the bottle before its commercial release.
Drink until 2022.
Decant 1 hour before drinking.
The wine Can Feixes Negre Tradició has a bright, clean cherry colour with a garnet rim.
This red wine by the Huguet de Can Feixes winery suggests some serious, tertiary aromas of smoke, leather and toast, combined with suggestive notes of black fruit, green bell pepper, moka, red berries, white pepper and balsam.
Mature and well-balanced, this red wine from Penedès a medium body and a savoury passage through the palate. Complex notes of spices, Havanna cigars, vegetables and toast, underpinned by remembrances of wild berries and garrigue. Tradició by Can Feixes has a good acidity, smooth tannins and long, toasted finish.
