Product Description
Details

This high-end Spanish red wine is made from grapes coming from a single, exceptional plot of only 1.5 hectares located in a privileged environment at the heart of Montsant. The result is true terroir-orientated wine.

A single varietal Grenache made from centenary vineyards and produced by Alfredo Arribas, harvest was carried out manually and the grapes were meticulously selected both on site and in the cellar.

Once there, they were cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Then Tros Negre was aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels.

Full of finesse and nuance, this red wine from Montsant will improve in the bottle for the next 7-9 years.

Be sure to decant Tros Negre 2013 a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Tros Negre has a medium cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.

 

Nose

Rich and delicate, showing a kaleidoscopic character. This single estate old-vines Grenache by Afredo Arribas begins by evoking notes of blueberries, red fruit, orange rind, liquorice, cinnamon and toffee, underpinned by a deep mineral layer, which give way to aromas of violets, lavender, dry earth and Mediterranean garrigue.

 

Palate

Subtle, nuanced, luminous. The texture of this Crianza red wine from Montsant is something to marvel at, as well as its orderly complexity. Hints of toast, Eastern spices and balsam, lively notes of redcurrants, raspberries and strawberries, some floral and mineral nuances and a dash of citrus and even apricots. Smooth-bodied, with a tense acidity and a long, complex finish with subdued mineral and earthy notions.

 

Our personal opinion

Not an ordinary Grenache, Tros Negre 2013 is an ode to finesse.

The quality of this Grenache is only matched by those produced in Gredos. This seems to have more flesh, but it ends in an aerial, weightless note. Top!!
