It reveals brooding black fruits, dried herbs (rosemary and thyme), mineral, lavender, and a hint of balsamic. Complex and structured on the palate with layers of spicy black fruit, it will reward 2-3 years of cellaring and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2023.
CELLER PIÑOL is a family run cellar devoted to the winemaking of fine wines based in Batea (DO Terra Alta).
The love and passion of Pinol family for the land and the vineyards started in the 20s when l'Avi Arrufi decided to produce the firsts liters of wine from his own vineyards. Now, four generations later, Juanjo Galcera Pinol continues the tradition of his great-grandfather respecting the values transmitted from father to son but incorporating the latest technology in order to innovate and be unique in the vine growing.
Many of Pinol wines are a tribute to the work and effort of the past generations. Some of the most emblematic wines represent those people who sacrified their lives working hard to make what is now Celler Pinol, the most recognized winery in Terra Alta.
