The Os Cantals from Cuevas de Arom is an excellent, multi-layered red wine from the Garnacha Tinta grape variety (100%). This red wine is grown in the Spanish D.O. Campo de Borja in Aragon.
In the glass, this Spanish wine sparkles in a medium garnet red with light red highlights. The aromatic bouquet has a complex variety of aromas. The nose enjoys juicy cherries, plums and ripe raspberries with hints of fresh liquorice and fennel. The spicy secondary notes reveal black pepper, clove and finely smoky nuances. The well-structured body presents a powerful personality that goes hand in hand with supple, ripe tannin and a firm acidic structure. This Spanish red wine convinces with finesse, elegance and a long, present finale.
Vinification of Cuevas de Arom Os Cantals
The Garnacha grapes for this complex red wine grow at an altitude of 500-600 m in a flat position on vines over 25 years old. The soils are rich in iron, lime and rock. The growth of the grapes is favoured by the continental climate with a slight Mediterranean influence.
The harvest and also the selection of the grapes is done carefully by hand. After gentle and gentle pressing of the harvested material, the resulting mash is fermented in cement tanks at a controlled temperature. After this completed fermentation process, this wine matures for 10 months in French oak wooden barrels. Finally, this red wine is lightly filtered and poured onto the bottle.
