From vineyards planted in granite and slate soils farmed following miminal intervention techniques, the Cooperative Empordàlia crafts Sinols Criança.
After a traditional vinification, Sinols Criança 2016 from Empordà was aged for 9 months in French and American oak barrels.
Only the barrels with the best quality wines were selected to make up the final blend of this Crianza red wine. Once bottled, it was aged for 12 months before its release.
The red wine Sinols Criança has a cherry coloured body with a violet edge.
Floral notes alongside black fruits such as bilberries and blackberries. This red wine by Empordàlia has a background of warm and creamy toast, alongside some spices and fresh balsamic notes.
There are notes of ripe red and black fruit, such as raspberry and blackberry jams, combined with spices, balsam and underbrush. This red wine from L'Empordà has a pleasant and intense finish with a bitter touch and a powerful aftertaste.
