An homage to the founder of bodega Juvé y Camps, Juvé y Camps Casa Vella Iohannes is the top-shelf Spanish red wine of the winery, produced only in remarkable vintages.
Made from a Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this red wine from Penedès is sourced exclusively from Finca Mediona, a vineyard with clay-loam soils located at 700 metres of altitude, in one of the freshest areas of DO Penedès.
The hand-harvested grapes were meticulously selected and macerated for a substantial period of time to extract colour and aromatic compounds. After that, they were fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.
Then the red wine Juvé y Camps Casa Iohannes 2015 was transferred into 1st and 2nd year fine-grained French oak barrels and aged for 12 months.
Finally, this reserva red wine was kept for some months in oak vats and, once bottled, for 2 more years minimum in the cellar before hitting the market.
Decant at least 40 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Juvé y Camps Iohannes is deep ruby with some purplish reflections.
Classy and dignified, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot carries aromas of bilberries and boysenberries, with hints of cedar, sandalwood and Havanna cigars, and some toasted and balsamic notes.
Powerful and poised, this wine of the Juvé y Camps winery has a creamy mouthfeel and a truly old world elegance, with refined tannins, impeccable acidity and a very long finish with some chocolatey, spicy and balsamic remembrances.
