Farmed following biodynamic procedures, after the harvest the grapes were destemmed, fermented and macerated for several weeks in stainless steel tanks.
Then, Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Negre 2018 was aged for 6 months in those tanks and for 3 months in French oak barrels.
The wine Les Argiles by the Orto Vins winery was formerly known as Terra Roja and Pedra Roja.
The wine Les Argiles d'Orto Vins has an intense cherry colour with some garnet tinges and some violet glints.
This red wine from Montsant exhibits some nice aromas of cherries and strawberries, combined with aromas of herbs, toast and flowers over a mineral, clayey (argila) background.
This wine by Orto Vins is fresh and fruity. Creamy touches of spices, fresh suggestions of Mediterranean garrigue and some hints of wild berries and flowers. This blend of Grenache and Samsó has some ripe tannins and a long, pleasant finish.
