Description

  • Grape variety Merlot
  • Vintage 2013
  • Origin Penedès
  • Tasting note It is a rich, flavourful red that displays great varietal typicity, with a deep, cherry red colour (very opaque), nicely focused aromas of ripe plum, and characteristic oak-imparted notes: toasted nuts and dried fruit, vanilla, and cinnamon. It also presents a balsamic quality and notes reminiscent of roasted, red bell pepper. The wine undergoes a 12-month barrel regime in French and American oak, followed by an average of 2 years in bottle. Big, unctuous, and persistent on the palate, with a seductive silky texture and firm tannins that will see the wine mature elegantly in the bottle for at least 5 years. A remarkably round, modern Mediterranean wine.
  • Gastronomy Viña Escarlata is a perfect match for charcuterie, cheese, stews, red meat, white meat, and even oven-baked or stewed fish.
  • Alcohol percentage 14,5%
  • Appellation of origin D.O. Penedès
