Product Description
Details

This interesting Spanish red wine is the result of the partnership between the Montsant based Coca i Fitó winery and Celler Roig Parals, based in L'Empordà.

It is made from Grenache and Carignan vineyards coming from different plots, in some of which the vines are up to 100 years old, farmed following sustainable practices.

The composition of Tocat de l'Ala is complemented by a small percentage of Syrah coming from 20-year-old vineyards.

Traditionally vinified, this red wine from L'Empordà was briefly aged in French oak barrels for a brief period of 4 months.

All in all, Tocat de l'Ala 2017 succeeds in showing the lighter, more cheerful side of the old wine region of Empordà, Dalí's territory.

Drink until 2022.

Additional Information
Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Tocat de l'Ala has a clean, bright, medium high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

Nose

Notes of spices, red berries, plums, blackberries, and Mediterranean herbs, which clearly point to a blend of Grenache and Carignan, with a touch of vanilla, toast and dry thyme. On the background, there are some aromas of black olives and chocolate, typical of Syrah.

Palate

The blend shows a great balance. Cocoa, liquorice, clove, wild berries, and some deep mineral undertones. This red wine from Coca i Fitó & Roig Parals has some ripe tannins, a good acidity and fresh, delicately spicy finish.

Our personal opinion

The juicy and drinker-friendly Tocat de l'Ala 2017 is one of the best values produced in L'Empordà in recent years.

A very drinkable wine, it also has that sort of raw authenticity you seldom find outside Empordà.
