SAMSÓ 2016 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.
100% Samsó of vineyards, subzone Turons del Penedès.

IN THE MOUTH: Fresh entry in the mouth with soft tannins, balanced in alcohol, mid density and with a fruity reminder, mid to lengthy retrotaste, very marked saltiness and an ending with a citric reminder (orange peel).
