La Comedia is a crisp, fresh Spanish red wine produced by the Celler Comunica winery in the Montsant region.
The aim of the winemakers was to convey the clayey-limestone soils in which the vines grow in the most honest way possible, even if that meant producing a wine with some slightly rough edges. Thus, they decided, quite rightly, not to age the wine in oak barrels.
From that moment, this red wine by Celler Comunica began a maceration process as fermentation went on.
Finally, La Comedia 2016 was aged for 8 months on its lees in those same steel tanks.
Production of 10,000 bottles.
La Comedia has a medium cherry-coloured robe with some bluish tinges and a violet rim.
This blend of Grenache and Syrah by Celler Comunica exhibits some transparent aromas of ripe strawberries, blackberries and Amarena cherries, combined with suggestions of aromatic herbs, wet earth and some mineral undertones.
This young, unoaked red wine from Montsant is fresh and accessible, with lively tannins, a remarkable acidity and a very good balance. Red fruit, underbush and a long, slightly bitter finish.
