Product Description
Details

Belonging to the DO Montsant, Terròs is the most interesting Spanish red wine crafted by La Cova dels Vins.

It is made from vineyards planted at 500 metres above sea level and grown in clay, limestone and slate soils.

The wine is a blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah coming from 30 to 80-year-old vineyards.

The three varieties were separately harvested, macerated and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

Then Terròs 2016 was blended and aged for 18 months in 300-litre French oak barrels.

Aerate this red wine from Montsant 40 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Terròs has a bright cherry colour with a violet rim.

Nose

Ripe red fruit, jammy black fruit, wrapped in dim aromas of clove, cumin and cinnamon. On the background, this Crianza red wine from Montsant suggests some intense mineral notions and remembrances of underbrush and violets.

Palate

Some balsamic and spicy notions, nuanced by notes of ripe fruit and some mineral intimations. This red wine by La Cova dels Vins has an excellent acidity, a smooth texture and some firm, delicious tannins. Long finish with some earthy and floral hints.

Our personal opinion

An excellent value, Terròs 2016 by winemaker Siscu Perelló makes a great pairing with game dishes and hearty stews.
