Product Description
Details

This confidential, impressively elegant Spanish red wine is produced by Raventós i Blanc from vineyards located in Penedès. The vines are planted in limestone soils peppered with marine fossils.

The composition of the 2016 vintage of Isabel Negra differs considerably from the previous ones. Flat out indigenous, it is made from a blend of 50% Sumoll, 30% Grenache and 20% Carignan.

The grapes were harvested by hand and meticulously selected. Then they were cold-macerated and underwent both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Isabel Negra 2016 wine was aged for 8 months in French oak barrels. Then it was blended and aged for some more time in the bottle before hitting the market.

Aerate this Crianza red wine some time before drinking.
