About iTant Garnatxa Negra
The iTant Garnatxa Negra (literally "black Garnacha" in the Catalan language) really showcases what the Garnacha grape variety is capable of in the limestone soils around the town of Falset, wine-making capital of the DO Montsant in southern Catalunya.
How iTant Garnatxa Negra is produced
The grapes are carefully selected and harvested by hand in the vineyard with any sub-standard fruit discarded. To maintain quality, the grapes are kept chilled at 10ºC on their way to the winery where they are de-stemming and undergo a gentle pressing before temperature-controlled fermentation at 15ºC in 100 hectolitre (ie 10,000 litre) stainless steel tanks to lock in aromas. Once fermentation is finished the wine is fined and filtered before it is bottled.
Tasting notes for iTant Garnatxa Negra
Medium to deep garnet red in colour. Strong aromas of red fruit with balsamic notes, aniseed and fennel - think of the aromas you might find in a Mediterranean wood. Intense red fruit flavours on the palate, with soft tannins that make for a creamy, pleasing structure and an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.
Drink iTant Garnatxa Negra with:
Main courses, all kinds of meats and stews and desserts with chocolate coating. Also works well as an after-dinner drink.
