Red Wine Planella 2018
Availability: In stock
The new vintage of Planella, produced by the Joan d'Anguera winery, is a single varietal Carignan made from Demeter certified vineyards. Located in Darmós, a town belonging to the DO Montsant, the vines are planted in rocky soils and farmed following rigorous biodynamic procedures.
Harvested by hand, the grapes were carefully selected and fermented in concrete tanks at a controlled temperature for 28 to 30 days.
After that, this red wine from Montsant was aged for 12-14 months in French oak barrels.
Aerate Planella 2018 30 minutes before drinking.
This organic red wine has a production around 10,000 bottles.
The wine Planella has a clean, bright ruby colour with a violet rim.
This biodynamic red wine from Montsant has a compelling nose. Deep and ever-evolving, this varietal Carignan suggests aromas of orange and lemon rind, red and blue flowers, aromatic herbs, wild berries, balsam, spices and cocoa.
This red wine by Joan d'Anguera has something which we could only define as "inner force". Still, it does not shout its virtues, but rather displays them in an understated way. It is very young, and has considerable room for growth. This Crianza red wine from Montsant shows an excellent balance between fruit and oak ageing. Smooth tannins, very good acidity and long finish with remembrances of mineral and black fruit.
