2106 – RED WINE CABERNET SAUVIGNON of the D.O. PENEDÈS
Origin: The Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety is one of the best known black grapes in the world. It grows in almost all major wine-growing areas and in a diverse spectrum of climates. Cabernet Sauvignon became famous for its presence in Bordeaux wine, where it saw the light. The vine appeared in the s. XVII, is the result of the crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. The key to its success is that it is an easy-to-grow variety. Therefore, it adapts to a wide variety of soils, climates and latitudes.
Cabernet Sauvignon wines: The Cabernet Sauvignon grape variety allows you to make wines of very intense coloration, very rich in tannin, with a large body. In fact, as they age, both in the boot and in the bottle, they gain a lot in finesse, aroma and flavour. When young, they are fruity, aromatic, and present as slightly herbaceous, with accentuated raspberry red color and violet hues. It is often mixed in blends with its “mother”, the Cabernet Franc, and also with the Merlot.
Aging: minimum of 12 months in French oak barrels and subsequent rest of 8 months in bottle before leaving the market.
· Colour: It has an intense red hue. A medium-high layer cherry red with small ocher tones on the edges of the glass that denote its passage through the barrel.
