Clos Fontà 2009 (Carignan, Garnacha and Syrah)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Clos Fontà 2009 shows an intense cherry cherry color with purple hues. Clean and bright. Nice and thin tear.
  • Nose: The deep minerality of licorella appears from the outset to go slowly mixing with the heavy load of black fruit and some ripe red, spicy touches (cinnamon, coffee, cocoa, snuff) and balsamic refreshing.
  • Mouth: In the mouth it is robust, powerful and in turn, silky and elegant. Have one step velvety mouth and tasty, meaty, where the ripe fruit is mixed, delicate roasted and minerality forming a balanced and harmonious whole. Good acidity and freshness. Feeling intense and ripe tannins. Very long and persistent. Excellent red wine, with a large concentration of flavors and aromas, powerful and with a great ride.

PAIRING: Grilled red meats, stews, civet, roasts, small game, big game hunting, white meats with sauce.

CELLAR: Mas d'en Gil

GRAPES: Hairy Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan

The Winery

Mas d'en Gil

In 1998 the family Rovira Carbonell, a long tradition and experience in the Penedès wine acquires "Masia Barril", which was the first winery bottling wines under this appellation. This farm, historic Priorat, had also belonged to the family of Catalan painter Santiago Rusiñol until early this century. Recovers the original name of the farm: "Mas d'en Gil" and works to preserve its balance and rich natural environment. A year later, in 1999, also acquired the property adjoining the "Sas" and setting the current 125 hectares that make up the property with vineyards, olive, hazelnut, almond trees and typical Mediterranean forest.
