Red Wine Sang de Corb 2017
Availability: In stock
The little-known Sang de Corb is a Spanish red wine produced in the southern Catalonian region of Terra Alta, a place with blisteringly hot summers and bitterly cold winters.
This wine is made from a blend of Grenache, Hairy Grenache and Carignan coming from a single estate, Dellà del Riu, comprised of vineyards over 65 years old. Certified organic, the estate is located in a pristine environment, and it is surrounded by almond, apple and olive-trees.
Produced by the exceedingly interesting Celler Frisach, a company with an uncompromising approach to winemaking, the wine was traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks.
After that, this wine from Terra Alta was aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.
Decant Sang de Corb 2017 a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.
The red wine Sang de Corb has a clean, very bright, medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.
This expressive blend of Grenache, Hairy Grenache and Carignan has a truly appealing nose. Fragrant notions of red fruit, alongside some citric touches, some floral nuances, a dash of dry earth, notes of undergrowth and dim toasted nuances over a seductive mineral background.
Bold and immensely vital, this Crianza red wine from Celler Frisach has a powerful entrance balanced by a tense acidity and a great freshness. Enticing notes of red berries over a mineral background and a panoply of Mediterranean herbs. Mild tannins and a very long, gently mineral finish.
|Our personal opinion||
The radically honest Sang de Corg 2017 performs excellently right now. However, it will surely acquire a greater level of complexity over the next 3-4 years.
