An essential classic
2013 was a very good vintage. The grapes were already very balanced with a high quantity and quality of ripe tannins on their skin and a good concentration of fruit.
Grenache of fresh fruit very intense with notes of candied fruit, Carinyena of black fruits such casis and candied fruits, and the touch of the Syrah spices, balsamic and forest fruits. In the aging of this wine appear aromas like chocolate and tobacco.
Therefore the result is a wine with primary aromas of fruit, candied fruits, balsamic and undergrowth. Fresh and lively in the mouth, balanced, unctuous, with sweet tannins.
Castell de Falset is great with meat dishes, casseroles and roast beef as well as game dishes.
By decanting it an hour before serving and at a temperatura of 18°C this wine will fully display its aromatic register.
Castell de Falset is also a great wine for aging, which will evolve spectacularly.
