Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler Cesca Vicent, Cesca Vicent is a Spanish red wine from the DOQ Priorat made from local and international grapes.

The main components are Grenache and Merlot, complemented with some strokes of Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. All of the grapes come from a single estate, Mas d'en Corral, where the organically certified vines grow in steep slopes with slate soils. 

Picked up by hand, the grapes were harvested at their optimal ripening point. Once in the cellar, this red wine from Priorat was first macerated with the skins at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks. Each variety was then separately fermented for an extended period of time, with daily rackings performed along the process. After that, Cesca Vicent 2017 was transferred into old French oak barrels, aged for 12 months, and subsequently bottled unfiltered.

We suggest that you aerate this Crianza red wine 20 minutes before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Cesca Vicent has an intense cherry colour with some purplish tinges.

Nose

There is no doubt that the nose is defined by a typical Grenache character, in the form of succulent strawberries and raspberries. There is also a note of black fruit, some mineral undertones, and a fleck of spices and red flowers. The Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Carignan and Syrah varieties certainly add complexity.  

Palate

Smooth and easy-to-drink, this wine of Celler Cesca Vicent is not your typical Priorat. Quite cheerful and very fresh, with an excellent acidity, smooth tannins and a mineral element which neither brooding nor overpowering. Medium, uplifting finish.

Our personal opinion

The sunny Cesca Vicent 2017 is a delicious Priorat which will pair excellently with cured meats and roast dishes.
