Product Description

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 bears the Gran Vi de Mas ('Grand Estate Wine') seal, which is the highest quality distintion 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 2019 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.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Parató Samsó is deep ruby with a purplish rim.


The unique personality of the Samsó (aka Carignan) shines through. Fruit is definitely not prominent, and the overall aromatic profile is somewhat austere and misterious. Bitter cocoa, sour cherries and spices, with deep aromas of balsam and garrigue and a smokey note.


This wine of the Parató Vinícola winery 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 aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

If you like bold red wines but are bored with fruit bombs, just try Parató Samsó 2019.

This wine rocks
This is interesting. Generously oaked, but crisp and nervy, with high acidity,
