Red Wine Formiga de Vellut 2018
Availability: In stock
Grapes were harvested by hand and separately vinified. Fermented and subsequently macerated with the skins, this red wine from Priorat was then blended and aged for 8 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels.
Prior to its bottling, Formiga de Vellut 2018 was gently clarified.
This organic red wine has a limited production.
The red wine Formiga de Vellut has an attractive, bright, high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
Quite intense and suprisingly complex, this blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah shows some pure aromas of red berries, notes of balsam and lively hints of black pepper and strawberry candies over a dim mineral background.
A good balance between youth and power. This red wine of Domini de la Cartoixa has some yummy tannins and a smooth body that weighs surprisingly little on the palate, making one think of an Atlantic wine. Playful notes of ripe red fruit, an elegant layer of spices and a fresh, light, smooth finish.
|Our personal opinion||
A gentle, smooth Priorat, Formiga de Vellut 2018 is a truly nice wine.
