Details

Racó d'Atans Criança 2008 is a mature, elegant red wine from Montsant produced by the Mas de les Vinyes winery.

The wine is crafted from a blend of 30 to 70-year-old vines, the composition being 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Merlot.

The vines grow in clay and sandy soils that bring a distinctive character to the wine.

Harvested at their optimal ripening point, the grapes were selected in the cellar and subsequently vinified in stainless steel tanks.

After that, the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Racó d'Atans Criança 2008 has a limited production of 8,500 bottles.

Drink now until 2023.
