Finely meshed and creamy, this has an up-front delicacy to the flavors -- strawberry preserves, soft cherry, mandarin orange peel, peach skin and grilled herbs -- that belies the overall intensity of the profile. The aromas and flavors expand on the plush palate, extending through the fresh and focused, well-spiced finish. Monastrell and Garnacha. Disgorged March 2022. Drink now through 2030. 1,250 cases made, 125 cases imported.
Recaredo’s uncompromisingly vinous, deeply colored sparkling rosé is produced from fully ripe Monastrell and Garnacha, pressed slowly and given six hours of skin-maceration, and given five years of lees aging. Bright, sappy, and bursting with salt-flecked fruit, this wine simultaneously expresses the verve of the vintage and the solar imprint of the terroir. If most still rosé from the French stretch of the sea straitjackets itself with overcropping, sulfur, and a rush to bottling (that salmon color so beloved by the market requires some coercion), “Intens” expresses the full luscious heat of the Mediterranean in typically Recaredo-esque visceral fashion, yet it remains scintillatingly vibrant and refreshing to drink.
