Ancients

Finca Tobella

Style

Ancients is a blend of Grenache and Carignane from vines aged between 80 and 100 years old. The yield per vine is less than a kilogram. We like to use a high percentage of Carignane in the final blend which, due to it’s natural high acidity, lends both crispness and freshness to the wine as well as long life.

Tasting notes

Opaque ruby-colored. Aromas of ripe red fruits (black cherries, cassis and blueberry) with aromatic herbs and balsamic background from barrel aging. In the mouth, the wine is rich with an intense fruit of dark cherries.  The finish is long and well balanced thanks to the natural freshness and minerality.
