Availability: In stock
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were selected, destemmed, cold-macerated and fermented for about a month. Then the fermentation process was stopped through the addition of wine alcohol, with a resulting final content of 15%. After that, Mistela del Montsant Negra was transferred into a different container and the solid remnants were gently pressed. Finally, the wine was clarified and stabilized before its bottling.
The name Mistela, incidentally, is a Catalan word that means "fortified wine".
The sweet red wine Mistela del Montsant Negra has an intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.
This sweet red wine from Montsant is suggestive and elegant. Notes of coca, blackberries, blue flowers and bitter cocoa, nuanced by remembrances of rose water and strawberry candy.
The texture of this Mistela Negra de Masroig is unctuous and dense. However, the freshness of Carignan gives the wine a remarkable vitality. Succulent, with remembrances of flowers, Mon Cheri bonbons, aromatic herbs and dry earth. Long finish.
|Our personal opinion||
An astounding value, this Mistela del Montsant Negra is best enjoyed cool, not chilled. Pair it with bitter chocolate, wild berries and Havanna cigars.
