Product Description
Details

Produced in Montsant by the renowned oenologist Joan Asens, Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Negre is a Spanish red wine made from a blend of Grenache and Samsó (Carignan) planted in clayey soils.

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.

Nose

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.
