Negre

Finca Tobella

Style

Our goal with the Finca Tobella Negre 2011 is to produce a wine that is more accessible with good fruit, fresher and with less barrel time (extraction) and aging.  To this end we take great pains to not harvest grapes at an overripe stage and control fermentation temperatures. Also we have changed the coupage with respect to the Finca Tobella Selecció Especial and placed more emphasis on Syrah and Carignane.

Thanks to the terroir and also varieties like Carignane, the wine has a good natural acidity which affords a liveliness and freshness not seen with most other wines of this class.
