The Wine Advocate- “The 2017 Tres Picos Garnacha has the disadvantage of a warmer and riper year and also from having lost the exuberance of the 2018 I tasted next to it. It’s less aromatic, and even if the élevage was slightly shortened, the palate seems to have suffered more from the effect of the new oak, which to me doesn’t really match the character of the floral and aromatic Garnacha. For fans of oaky, powerful reds.”
Characteristics of the vineyard: Mountain vineyards with an age of 35 to 60 years situated at an altitude of 600-700 meters, on stony, slimy soils with clay and limestone.
Elaboration: Maceration during 20-25 days in total. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 25º-30º C. The wine is submitted to an aging of 5 months in new bordelaise barrels of French oak.
Tasting notes: Very intense cherry red colour with tones of purple. Presents in the nose a great concentration of aromas of ripe red fruit with floral nuances. In the mouth it is a well structured rich wine that evokes tastes of blackberry, plum and tones of leather and vanilla, with a soft and silky tannin.
