Details

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

Farmed following biodynamic procedures, first the grapes were destemmed and macerated for 28 days in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Negre 2019 was fermented in the tanks, and then it was aged in 5 to 12-year-old barrels for 3 months.

The red wine Les Argiles from the Orto Vins winery was formerly known as Terra Roja and Pedra Roja.

Nose

This blend of Grenache and Samsó exhibits some nice aromas of cherries and strawberries, combined with aromas of herbs, toast and flowers over a mineral, clayey (argila) background.
