Product Description

Made from a blend which is rather uncommon in Penedès, Jean Leon 3055 Merlot Petit Verdot is produced by the Jean Leon winery.

Specifically, this Spanish red wine combines Merlot, coming from a 8-vineyard planted in 1997, with a higher proportion of Petit Verdot (60%), coming from a 12-hectare vineyard planted in 2006.

The grapes were carefully harvested and separately vinified. First, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then, this organic red wine was macerated for two weeks with the grape skins.

After that, Jean Leon 3055 Merlot Petit Verdot 2020 was aged for 4 months in French oak barrels.

Finally, this vegan red wine was aged for some months in the bottle before its market release.
