Red Wine Nunci Negre 2016
Crianza red wine from Priorat. Blend of 6 varieties aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
Availability: In stock
This blended Spanish red wine is made from the following varieties: Grenache, Mazuela (better known in Priorat as Carignan), Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which come from vines grown in llicorella (slate) soils using minimal intervention techniques.
Hand-picked and carefully selected, each variety was individually vinified in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.
After that, this red wine from Priorat was transferred into new, 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels.
Then Nunci Negre 2016 was aged for 12 months. Finally, it was kept in the cellar for some years before being released onto the market.
Pair this Crianza red wine with oily fish recipes and meat dishes.
Aerate some time before drinking.
The red wine Nunci Negre is medium purple with a ruby-coloured rim.
This blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Mazuela (Carignan), Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon is complex and nuanced. Red berries and crème de cassis, with a note of flowers and graphite and some smokey and toasted nuances.
Powerful and flavourful, this wine from Celler Mas de las Pereres exhibits remarkable balance and elegance, with polished tannins, a steely acidity and excellent fruit underpinned by some mineral and balsamic notes. Gently toasted finish with a spicy aftertaste.
