Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Ètnic has a bright cherry colour with some violet glints.

Nose

Surprisingly seductive, this blend of Carignan & Grenache smells of jammy black fruit, combined with notes of balsam, moka, pepper, vanilla and cinnamon, echoed by some distant overtones of herbs and garrigue.

Palate

This Montsant red wine by Celler Masroig is smooth, intense and quite elegant. Texture is dense, but weightless, and the wine shows plenty of agility on the palate. Creamy, fruity and well-balanced, with an excellent acidity. Long finish with remembrances of fruit and earth.

Our personal opinion

As we've just said, Ètnic 2016 is a phenomenal value. A completely unpretentious wine that delivers great pleasure.
