Availability: In stock
The red wine Parató Samsó is one of the very few varietal Carignan wines (here called by its local name, Samsó) produced in Penedès.
It must be mentioned that this Spanish red wine belongs to the the Gran Vi de Mas (Grand Estate Wine) category, the highest quality level currently existing within DO Penedès.
Produced by Parató Vinícola, the grapes are sourced from two parcels of organically certified vines planted in 1978 in Guardiola de Font-rubí.
After a meticulous harvest, the grapes were traditionally vinified. First they were fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. After that, this organic red wine was transferred into French and American oak barrels.
Then, Parató Samsó 2018 went through malolactic fermentation and was aged for a period of 15 months.
This varietal Crianza red wine will be a great accompaniment for hearty meat recipes.
Decant this red wine from Penedès 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Parató Samsó is deep ruby with a purplish rim.
The unique personality of the Samsó (aka Carignan) shines through. This is not a fruit explosion, but something more austere and misterious. Sour cherries, bitter cocoa and spices, with deep aromas of balsam and garrigue and a smokey note.
This wine from Parató Vinícola is structured, sinewy and dry, with great tension, good balance and a steely acidity. Gently bitter, with blackcurrants, exotic spices and an earthy note. Long finish with a peppery and herbal note.
