Details

The tiny, family-owned La Cova dels Vins winery crafts this Spanish red wine from 15 to 40-year old vineyards.

Located in Montsant, at an altitude around 400 metres above sea level, the plants grow in  slate soils.

The wine Ombra is mainly made from Grenache, complemented with Carignan (aka Samsó) and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Both the harvest and the vinification process were carried out manually. Fermentation and maceration took place in stainless steel tanks.

Then this red wine from Montsant was aged for 14 months in 300-litre French oak barrels from Allier .

Drink Ombra 2016 until 2022.

Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

 

 

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Ombra has a clean, intense cherry colour with a garnet rim.

 

Nose

This red wine from Montsant shows a variety of sweet and spicy aromas and juicy red fruit over a mineral and earthy background.

 

Palate

Pleasant, gently warm and smooth. Fruit is very present, nuanced by some spicy and balsamic tips and an excellent acidity. Tannins are ripe, and the ending of this red wine by La Cova dels Vins is gentle and pleasant, leaving some creamy and mineral remembrances.

 

Our personal opinion

Excellent with hearty dishes, Ombra 2016 conveys the gentlest side of Montsant.
