Product Description
Details

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

Made from Grenache, Samsó (Carignan) and Ull de Llebre (Tempranillo), the grapes were sorted from 40 to 70-year-old vines grown in three plots: Coma Nicolau, Coma Roquera and Coma Gigolà, each of which is planted with a single variety. The soils are composed of limestone, clay and gravel.

Each plot was separately harvested and traditionally vinified. The grapes underwent a long maceration process with the skins. Then they were fermented in stainless steel tanks and subsequently transferred into used French oak barrels. Finally, Les Comes d'Orto 2017 completed malolactic fermentation and was aged for 12 months in the barrels.

Pair this Montsant red wine with cured cheeses and stews.

Appearance

The wine Les Comes d'Orto has a bright, medium cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Well-defined and intense, this blend of Grenache, Samsó and Ull de Llebre conveys aromas of damson, mulberries and Amarena cherries, with hints of toast, spices and balsam, alongside some mineral undertones, blue flowers and undergrowth.

Palate

This Crianza red wine from the Orto Vins winery 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

Round, deep and moreish, Les Comes D’Orto 2017 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.
