Another relatively less known Spanish region – Montsant near Barcelona in North East Spain. Celler Masroig is one of Spain’s most highly respected cooperatives and Sola Fred is one of their most established wines. The Mediterranean climate and continental influences, with dry summers, poor fertility of terrain and mountainous landscape all make their mark on this divine wine. Dark cherry red in colour. The nose is very aromatic and full of ripe fruit (cherry and plum) with touches of balsamic and dark cocoa. A classic example of wine made from Cariñena grapes, with fine tannins reflecting the ripeness of the fruit. A well-balanced wine with a soft, lingering finish.
Food matches: Wonderful with meat dishes with rich sauces and roasted vegetables.
