About

90

"The red-blend Orto is the wine that represents their philosophy. The grapes for the 2016 Orto are from the village of El Masroig from a very dry year. The blend is approximately 55% Cariñena, 30% Garnacha, 10% Ull de Llebre (the local strain of Tempranillo) and 5% Picapoll Negre from older and younger vines fermented in stainless steel vats and aged in barrique with lees for six months. Harmonious and subtle, it has elegant aromas and feels somehow delicate. The palate is terrifically balanced, with very fine tannins and a silky texture. Lovely. 16,000 bottles were filled in July 2017."
