2565 – RED WINE COSTERS DEL GRAVET 2020 – CAPÇANES – D.O. MONTSANT
Characteristics: The grapes used come from vines between 15 and 60 years old located at an altitude that ranges between 200 and 550 meters. The vines, as well as the final taste of the wine, benefit from the diversity of the soils in which they grow. These are limestone, shale, honeycomb and clay.The harvest is done manually and the grapes then go through a double selection process. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of between 27º and 29ºC.
Description: Capçanes Winery is named after the town of Priorat, in the province of Tarragona, in which it is located. This winery is a cooperative that currently has 125 members and was born in 1933 at the request of a few farmhouses in the area.
Aging: The maceration, which lasts between two and three weeks, is followed by malolactic fermentation, carried out at a controlled temperature, which begins in tanks and ends in barrels. The wine is finally aged for twelve months in first-year French oak barrels.

· View: Dense ruby red colour.
· Nose: Costers del Gravet 2021 unfolds with aromas of ripe blackberries and a touch of licorice that seduce at the first sniff. On tasting it, it reveals itself with soft tannins and an acidity that brings freshness, balanced by a body of medium intensity.
· Mouth: Its journey through the palate leaves a persistent impression, dry and with a slightly thick texture. Clove nuances and a subtle smokiness add complexity to this concentrated and distinguished red wine.
Pairing: Pairs very well with an assortment of cheeses, with game birds, meat rice or with a good broken beef fillet. And if you prefer fish, you can also accompany it with a well-spiced homemade fish stew – a monkfish and croaker casserole would be a great choice!
Service: It is recommended to serve it between 14 and 16 ºC. We recommend decanting before serving.
