Gran Caus Tinto is a wine that encapsulates the essence and richness of the Penedès region, known for its diversity of soils and its ideal climate for high-quality viticulture. This red wine represents the passion and commitment of the Can Ràfols dels Caus winery to create wines that reflect the uniqueness of its terroir, using viticultural practices that are respectful of the environment and the nature of the grapes. Made mainly with the Merlot grape variety, complemented with touches of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, Gran Caus Tinto is the result of a meticulous selection of grapes from carefully tended vineyards. These varieties, grown in vineyards located on limestone and clay soils, benefit from the Mediterranean climatic conditions with maritime influence, which contributes to the balanced ripening of the grapes and the complexity of flavors and aromas of the wine. Visually, the wine presents a deep and bright red color, which invites closer exploration. On the nose, it displays a rich aromatic palette where notes of ripe red fruits such as cherries and blackberries predominate, intertwined with subtle nuances of spices, aromatic herbs and an elegant touch of oak, the result of its aging in barrels that provides complexity without overpowering the expression. fruity. In the mouth, Gran Caus Tinto is powerful and structured, with balanced acidity that provides freshness and liveliness to the whole. The tannins are soft and well integrated, giving the wine a silky texture and a generous palate. The flavors of ripe fruits are complemented by notes of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, derived from its aging in the barrel, culminating in a long and persistent finish that leaves a lasting impression. This wine is an ideal companion for red meat dishes, game, Mediterranean cuisine dishes rich in flavors and cured cheeses. It is also excellently enjoyed alone, allowing the taster to fully appreciate its complexity and depth. Aged in French oak for 12 months and a minimum of 6 years in bottle.
