Tasting note

Vino tinto de capa media, con unas tonalidades a cereza madura, que denotan un vino con una buena vida en la botella

Ligero toque de madera y vainilla debido a la larga crianza en barricas, maquillado con los aromas de fruta roja muy madura, con unos tonos de hierbas de sotobosque, balsámicos y muy fresco.

In the mouth

Destaca su tanino redondeado y la combinación excelente entre la fruta y la madera de la barrica.

Cal Costas Farmhouse

It is the most complex red wine of the winery and also the most elegant, coming from our Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vineyards in our Cal Costas estate, next to the winery, aged about 10 and 25 years respectively.

Vines that try to work in such a way that they produce as little as possible. Situated on a wind-driven plain, and with a rather poor soil, the black grapes are small and with a high concentration of polyphenols. This, together with the altitude of the estate, means that we obtain a strong red wine, which is unusual in the Penedès.

Harvested by machine in the early morning, it arrives fresh first thing in the morning, although it is dark in the cellar. It is skidded and vatted directly into the self-emptying tank.

Pre-fermentative maceration of 1 day and quite cold, with pumping over to extract the maximum fruit aromas. 12-15 days maceration-fermentation, depending on the vintage, to extract all the qualities of the skin.

Minimum bleeding and pressing of the skins, according to tasting. Resting in stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation. Once the malolactic fermentation is finished, we put it in French and American oak barrels, in equal parts, of 225 of 1st-2nd-3rd year, where it will spend between 9 and 12 months, depending on tasting and vintage. Subsequent ageing in the bottle for at least 6 months.
