Red Wine Orto 2018
Availability: In stock
Former chief oenologist of Bodegas Álvaro Palacios, Joan Asens decided to strat his own wine project several years ago.
Farmed followed the principles of biodynamic agriculture, the grapes were picked by hand. Then they were fermented and macerated for 28 days at a controlled temperature.
After completing malolactic fermentation, this red wine from Montsant was aged for 6 months in 6 to 10-year-old French oak barrels.
Before bottling, Orto 2018 was gently filtered.
The wine Orto is cherry red with a garnet rim.
At first, this blend of Samsó, Grenache, Ull de Llebre and Picapoll Negre suggests some clean notes of red berries, slowly evolving into notes of violets, with some dim undertones of spices, toast and balsam.
Agile and vibrant, this red wine of Orto Vins has some ripe tannins and an excellent, crisp acidity. There are some forest-like and underbrush notions, a note of blackberries, dim mineral undertones, and notes of flowers. Long fruity finish.
