Product Description
Details

The tiny, family-owned La Cova dels Vins winery crafts this Spanish red wine from 15 to 40-year-old vines.

Located in the DO Montsant, at an altitude around 400 metres above sea level, they are planted in slate soils.

The wine Ombra is mainly made from Grenache, complemented with Carignan (aka Samsó) and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Both the harvest and the vinification process were carried out manually. Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks.

Then this red wine from Montsant was aged for 14 months in 300-litre French oak barrels from Allier .

Aerate Ombra 2017 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Ombra has a clean, intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

This lively Crianza red wine shows a variety of sweet and spicy aromas and juicy red fruit over a mineral and earthy background.

Palate

Pleasant, gently warm and smooth. Fruit is very present, nuanced by some spicy and balsamic tips and an excellent acidity. Tannins are ripe, and the ending of this red wine from La Cova dels Vins is gentle and pleasant, leaving some creamy and mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

Excellent with hearty dishes, Ombra 2017 conveys the gentlest side of Montsant.
