Vins del Tros – Lo Morenillo 2017 – DO Terra Alta
Wine made only with the almost extinct varietal MORENILLO, from a vineyard recovered for more than 50 years in the municipality of Vilalba dels Arcs. This varietal takes the name Morenillo because historically red wines made with this type of grape had a slightly higher color. – That’s why people say that this wine is not red, it’s “morenillo” …
You will find, however, a wine with an atypical intense color for this varietal given that it comes from very old vineyards with a very low yield per vine, hence the high concentration.
Type of crop: Ecological with biodynamic orientation.
Preparation: Fermentation in stainless steel tanks with spontaneous yeasts.
Aged 12 months in third year French oak barrels half wine and the other half in clay amphorae.
Bottled on March 4, 2019 (with waning moon).
1,296 bottles of this wine were made.
