Product Description
Details

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.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Planella has a clean, bright ruby colour with a violet rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

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.

 

Our personal opinion

Bold but not beefy, Planella 2018 is a fabulous value from Montsant. Pair it with hearty dishes.

Crisp and deep, the Carignan provides the punch, and the Syrah mellows it just enough to avoid the wine being austere. Review by Klander (Posted on 20/12/2018)

Honestly, I don't know how the winery is able to sell wines as good as theses at such a low price. This wine dances and sings in your palate without suffocating it. It is full of vitality, full-bodied and not even in its prime. Review by Misty (Posted on 15/11/2017)
