Product Description
Details

Les Comes d'Orto is a red wine from Montsant crafted following a philosophy of minimal intervention by the respected winemaker Joan Asens.

This Spanish red wine is made from a blend of Samsó (Carignan), Grenache and Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo).

The grapes come from vines planted in different plots with soils composed of limestone, clay and gravel.

The vineyards are 40 to 70 years of age.

After a traditional vinification, with long periods of maceration with the skins, the wine was aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.

Drink Les Comes d'Orto 2015 until 2022.

Nose

This Crianza red wine from Montsant by winemaker Joan Asens smells of prystine wild berries, liquor-infused cherries, toast, spices, balsam, some mineral undertones and notions of undergrowth.

Palate

This blend of Grenache, Samsó and Ull de Llebre by Orto Vins is bold, intense and meaty. It displays prominent notes of red fruit, amarena cherries, balsam, flowers and some smokey nuances. Good structure, ripe tannins, tense acidity and a long, mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Les Comes D’Orto 2015 is a traditional, authentic Montsant.

This is a very gentle and pleasing wine. Not overextracted or overoaked, it keeps a great balance and lingers long in your palate.
