Sommos Crianza Magnum
SOMMOS CRIANZA, an intense modern wine that endures on the palate.
“Cordon libero” style vineyard trained at a height of 1.3 m at our Montesa estates. Dry farming method used in sandy loam soils with low organic content. Average production of 4,500 kg/ha.
Mechanical night harvest during the second and third weeks of September. Parcels are harvested individually, resulting in distinct wines. All grapes undergo selection at the sorting table and barrels are filled by the flow of gravity.
Fermentation between 26°C and 28°C, followed by approximately 15 days of maceration for Cabernet and Merlot with 5 days for Syrah. Malolactic fermentation in cement tanks.
Aged for six months in French oak barrels and subsequently blended.
Colour: Intense cherry red with a purplish rim.
Nose: Merlot’s distinctive ripe plums and black cherries come out together with Syrah’s signature spice notes of clove and black pepper.
Palate: Cabernet Sauvignon’s pronounced structure and robust character are complemented by sweet, supple tannins smoothed over by barrel ageing.
Serving Temperature: 16ºto 18ºC.
