This wine is like a orchestra symphony where Grenache and Carignan sing a song of ripe red fruit in tune with mineral and floral notes. A little edgy (which we like), this medium-bodied red loves to play an intriguing solo, opening up slowly. Find a spicy palate full of juiciness that goes well with everything from pulled pork to jerk chicken.

Francesc Ferre’s family has been farming grapes organically in Corbera d’Ebre for over 200 years, but it wasn’t until 2009 when they began expanding their endeavor. The new project was led by Francesc, who was just 21 at the time and fresh out of school. The wines speak to Corbera’s combination of Mediterranean sun, evening winds from the sea, and cool nights due to high elevation. Today, winemaking is overseen by Francesc and his brother Joan with a devotion to natural techniques.

Soil Type: Calcareous Clay Aged in Concrete Tanks
