Winemaking:The grapes were harvested and carefully selected by hand. Then they underwent a cold maceration at 5ºC for two days. The fermentation took place with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 26ºC. For the malolactic fermentation, part of the wine was racked into French oak foudres as well as into concrete eggs. The wine was then left to mature for 18 months.
Winemaker's Comments:This wine is an attractive ruby-red colour. The nose is intense, with notes of fresh red fruit, where cherries prevail. In the mouth, it is smooth and fruity, achieving a perfect balance between the acidity and residual sugar. The tannins are sweet, with a vibrant and juicy finish.Carignan Sabio has a long, elegant finish.
