Produced by Celler Masroig, Pinyeres Negre is yet another astounding value from DO Montsant.

This terroir-oriented Spanish red wine is made from a blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan.

Carefully harvested and selected, the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks. After that, this red wine from Montsant underwent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels, where it was aged for 12 months.

Prior to its release, Pinyeres Negre 2020 was aged for a further months in the bottle.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Pinyeres Negre is medium ruby with a purplish rim.

Nose

Very expressive, carrying pristine notes of red berries and Mediterranean garrigue. Vibrant and gently smokey, this blend of old-vines Grenache and Carignan effortlessly marries the fruit with a note of balsam, liquorice, and spice.

Palate

This wine from Celler Masroig is crisp and linear, with excellent acidity and ripe tannins. Wild berries, menthol, toast and underbrush make for an extremely pleasant combination. Medium-long, pleasantly mineral finish.

Our personal opinion

Honest and totally unpretentious, Pinyeres Negre 2020 offers fabulous quality for money. Give it a try.

I drink this quite often. It is excellent for everyday consumption. The fruit is excellent and the winemakers seem to know their craft.
