Fruity & Smooth
Josep’s family has been making wines for personal consumption in their Masia, a Catalan word for farm house, since 1843. In 2008 the family decided to start selling their production: wines that reflect their passion for viticulture and their landscape. Their philosophy, both in viticulture and winemaking is very sustainable-based.
The Sentits Negreis a dark and intense version of Garnatxa, where the fruit is hand harvested and brought into the cellar for a natural fermentation in stainless steel and oak barrels. The wine is transferred to lightly toasted, new French Allier oak barrels for malolactic conversion and 12 months of aging.
The resulting wine is impressive yet elegant and very well balanced. On the nose there is expressive notes of raspberry, forest fruits, spices, and mustard, while the palate echoes these flavours with a fantastic balance of acidity and smooth tannins.
