Garbo Red2014 GARBÓ RED

The Grape

The Denominación de Origen (D.O.) of Montsant [mont-SANT] was created in 2001, carved out of the much larger D.O. of Tarragona. It virtually encircles the famed Priorat D.O. The Montsant region is a few hours drive southwest of Barcelona and only a few miles from the Mediterranean. 

The landscape, like Priorat, is rugged and stony, with centuries-old hand-hewn terraces climbing the steep mountain sides with a Mediterranean climate. As in Priorat, the best wines of the region are red. The wines are often very concentrated with deep color and high alcohol, due to rainfall and the warm summer climate. Traditional grapes include Syrah, Garnacha and Cariñena. There are small plantings of Garnacha Blanca and Macabeo for white wines.

The Blend

Merlot and Tempranillo

Tasting Notes

Brilliant morello cherry red with a violet rim. Good intensity. A bright, positive expression of fresh fruit, with a noticeable balsamic note beneath. Full of flavour, with the influences of its very short spell in wood perfectly integrated with the predominant fruit flavours.
