After the harvest, the grapes were separately vinified in wooden vats.

Decant this red wine from Terra Alta of 30 minutes before drinking it.
Drink through 2022.
The red wine Portal Criança has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a garnet rim.
Clean, straightforward aromas of wild berries, menthol and underbrush, combined with some creamy toasted notions, hints of vanilla and notes of Jamaican pepper and clove. This wine by Celler Piñol is intensely expressive.
Round and pleasant, with a smooth texture and a meaty body. Vanilla, toast, red and black fruit, dim mineral notions and some remembrances of exotic spices.This red wine from Terra Alta has a good acidity, ripe tannins and long, smokey and balsamic finish.
