The red wine Lasendal Selecció has an intense cherry colour with a violet rim.
The higher percentage of Grenache (50%) defines the aromatic profile of the blend. This wine by Celler de Capçanes is reminiscent of spices, with some smooth toasted nuances, a lively red fruit, and subtle notes of Mediterranean underbrush, dry earth and flowers.
Easy-to-drink and smooth, with notes of wild berries, some earthy and mineral remembrances and a dash of flowers. This Montsant red wine has some mild tannins, a good acidity, and a long, gently spicy finish.
