Produced by Mas den Gil, the red wine Coma Vella is named after a vineyard planted with two types of Grenache: the well-known Red Grenache, and the rare Hairy Grenache. Those two varieties account for the main part of this Spanish red wine.
The grapes were picked by hand, and each variety was separately vinified. Maceration and alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and concrete diposits.
After that, the wine was transferred into 225, 1,500 and 3,000-litre oak barrels, where it was aged for 14 months. Then the red wine Coma Vella 2018 was bottled and aged for a further 24 months before its commercial release.
It is advisable to decant this Reserva red wine at the very least 30 minutes before drinking.
Pair this Priorat red wine with casseroles, oily fish dishes and hearty meat recipes.
The red wine Coma Vella is medium purple with a clean ruby rim.
This blend of Grenache, Hairy Grenache, Carignan and Syrah is as appealing as its composition suggests. Subtle aromas of cranberries and blackberries, with subdued notes of graphite and wet stones, a fleck of violets and rose petals, and some dim herbal, tobacco and spicy remembrances.
Well-rounded and in command of itself, this wine of Mas d'en Gil shows the sort of calm confidence which is rarely encountered today. Everything is in the right place. Tannins are ripe, acidity is firm, and texture is nuanced and moreish. Long finish, with an aftertaste of ripe red fruit and herbs, and a mineral/metallic note.
