Castellana Negra 2018

100 % Castellana Negra

Red aged in French oak barrels

Elaboration

Selection of the grape in the vineyard and in the selection table at the reception of the harvest. 100% hand-destemmed grapes and lightly trodden in open French oak barrels. The alcoholic fermentation took place directly inside the barrels which were closed and rolled horizontally 2 to 3 times a day to result in a very smooth extraction. Once this fermentation was finished, the wine was separated from the skins and malolactic fermentation and aging took place in 225L French oak barrels. 50% new barrels. Aged in barrels for 12 months and a minimum of 12 months in the bottle before going on the market.

Notes

With an intense violet red layer, the nose presents aromas of black and red fruits with subtle touches of eucalyptus and black pepper. In the mouth it shows a beautiful structure with a pleasant and round persistence with elegant tannins. A good structure that endows this wine with an interesting aging potential.
