NEGRE PARATÓ

SAMSÓ 2018 Organic

Varietal wine where we wanted to rediscover the variety Samsó (Cariñena), which has always been worked in Penedès. It comes from the only two plots located in Guardiola de Font-rubí planted in 1978. A full wine with structure, but elegant and round, nothing heavy, gentle and kind in his palate. Ideal with the most typical dishes of the cuisine of our country based with meat, sausages and roasts.
