Product Description
Details

Produced by bodega Mas CandíLes Forques is a blend of Monastrell (50%), Cabernet SauvignonSumoll, Mandó and Monica, a very rare grape variety.

Located in DO Penedès, the vineyards have clay-limestone soils with a layer of gravel on the surface.

Harvested by hand, the grapes were first cold-macerated in stainless steel tanks. Then this Spanish red wine was fermented for 20 days, with daily punch-downs. After that, it was transferred into 300-litre French oak barrels, where Les Forques 2018 was aged for 12 months.

Made from an uncommon blend of grape varieties, this Crianza red wine from Penedès is versatile and stimulating.

Appearance

The red wine Les Forques is bright cherry with some maroon glints.

Nose

As one might expect, this blend of Monastrell, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sumoll, Mandó and Monica is rather complex. Red berries and blackcurrants, with notes of flowers, cocoa and citrus, as well as spices and underbrush.

Palate

Fresh, lifted and savoury, this wine of bodega Mas Candí is fruit-driven and gently spicy. Pleasant finish with a note of aromatic herbs and toast. 

Our personal opinion

A nice Penedès, the red Les Forques 2018 will pair well with pasta, rice dishes and tapas.
