Product Description
Details

The little-known Sang de Corb is a radically indigenous 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 vineyard, Dellà del Riu, planted with vines over 65 years old. Certified organic, the vines are located in a pristine environment, surrounded by almond, apple and olive-trees.

Produced by the exceedingly interesting Celler Frisach, a company with an uncompromising terroir-oriented approach to winemaking, the wine was traditionally vinified in stainless steel tanks.

After that, Sang de Corb 2018 was aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels.

Decant this organic red wine from Terra Alta a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Sang de Corb is medium cherry with a violet rim.

Nose

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.

Palate

Bold and immensely vital, this 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

An "unplugged" wine in the best sense of the term, Sang de Corg 2018 is as terroir-driven as it gets.

A truly nice wine, sort of "peasant wine 2.0". Very pure and well balanced. Check out the rest of the wines of this producer.
