Availability: In stock
The red wine Pura Vida Negre is produced by Cellers Underground. Located in Costers del Segre, this is the joint project of Joan Soler and Richard Sanz, two winemakers that also work at wineries such as Lafou, Abadal and Menade.
Separately vinified according to the variety, once in the cellar the grapes were refrigerated during a whole night and subsequently fermented in stainless steel tanks with short pump-overs. Once malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine was blended and aged for 12 months in 2nd and 3rd year oak barrels.
After that, Pura Vida Negre 2018 was added a 15% wine coming from the next vintage before it was finally bottled.
Aerate this red wine from Costers del Segre 20 minutes before drinking.
The wine Pura Vida Negre is deep ruby with a garnet rim.
Deeply mineral and very expressive, this blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Syrah carries loads of red fruit and notes of cocoa and tobacco, alongside notes of violets and balsam.
Mouthful and expansive, this red wine from Cellers Underground is nevertheless quite fresh. Fruit-driven, with some spicy and balsamic nuances, a well-balanced acidity and a long, savoury finish.
