The final composition of this red wine from Montsant was 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan (Samsó). After an exquisite vinification, Territori 2016 was aged for 14 months in a 2,000-litre Stockinger Austrian oak vat. It was not filtered or clarified before its bottling.
Decant Territori 30 minutes before drinking. Drink over the next 5 years.
Production of only 3,300 bottles.
The red wine Territori Garnatxa Samsó has an intense ruby colour.
Nicely aromatic, this Grenache and Carignan from Montsant smells of wild berries, flowers, jammy red fruit and spices, nuanced by some toasted hints.
Fresh and lively, with plenty of juicy red fruit and Mediterranean garrigue, some toasted remembrances and a lively, crisp acidity. This red wine by Josep Grau has a long, gently mineral finish.
