Bodega Marco Abella, based in Priorat, recently started a project in the DO Terra Alta. Marco Abella Olbieta Negre is the first Spanish red wine produced by the company in that region. Freshness and drinkability are the key words of the new product line.
A blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, the grapes were harvested by hand and then each individual plot of each grape variety were separately vinified. After fermenting in stainless steel tanks, Marco Abella Olbieta Negre 2019 was aged for 3 months in French oak barrels. Finally, the wine was blended and aged for some time in the bottle.
Pair this red wine from Terra Alta with light dishes or rice recipes.
The red wine Marco Abella Olbieta Negre has an intense cherry colour with a violet rim.
This suggestive blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah smells of red berries, black fruit and flowers. There is a balsamic background, with tips of aniseed and Mediterranean herbs.
Smooth-bodied, fresh and nimble, this wine of Marco Abella has some light tannins and a very approachable character. Pleasant finish, with remembrances of red fruit and herbs.
