Product Description
Details

Produced by Celler Pascona, Pascona Clàssic is a Spanish red wine which showcases the best qualities of the Montsant region.

A blend of Grenache and Carignan, the grapes were sorted from old vines planted in granite and sandy soils.

Meticulously selected, the grapes were macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 20 days. After that, this Crianza red wine was aged in French oak barrels form 9 months. Finally, Pascona Clàssic 2018 was naturally stabilized and gently filtered before being bottled.

Fresh and substantial, this is a very versatile Montsant red wine.

Appearance

The red wine Pascona Clàssic has a cherry colour with a purple rim.

Nose

Intense and complex, this blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan smells of blueberries and cranberries, with hints of figs, vanilla, toast and spices over a mineral background.

Palate

Yummy and elegant, with a crisp acidity and some ripe tannins. This wine of Celler Pascona is long and nuanced, with red fruit, herbs de Provence and dim spicy notes. Long, substantial finish.

Our personal opinion

Traditional in the best sense of the term, Pascona Clàssic 2018 is as elegant as it is pleasant. Pair it with cold cuts and stew dishes.
