This is the new vintage of Comunica, a rather original Spanish red wine from the DO Montsant.
This wine from Celler Comunica was meticulously vinified. The whole grapes were fermented and macerated in stainless steel tanks for 15 days.
Then Comunica 2016 was aged on its lees in those same tanks for a period of 10-12 months.
Production around 8,000 bottles. Aerate this red wine from Montsant 30 minutes before drinking.
The Spanish red wine Comunica has a clean, bright cherry colour with some violet edges.
Rather pure, this red wine from Montsant combines a mixture of Mediterranean aromas -underbrush, garrigue, blue flowers and menthol- with some enticing nuances of mulberries, raspberries and cherries. The blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah really delivers.
This red wine from Celler Comunica has a fresh, inviting entrance onto the palate. Slightly rugged, lively tannins, crisp acidity and a good balance. Pure and unmasked, with a linear, fat-free character and a nice complexity. The finish leaves remembrances of violets, aromatic herbs and some earthy and mineral suggestions.

This is very interesting. Flowers, cacao and...a cola-like note?
No oak, fruit is all there is here, and you don't need anything more. Smooth.
