Masroig Sola Fred Montsant 2018

Montsant, Catalunya (Catalonia Cataluña), SpainThe Masroig or 'red farm' co-op was established in Montsant, the Holy Mountain region surrounding Priorat, in 1918. Today, a century later, it is among the finest cooperatives in all of Spain. The samso (carignan) grown over clay and black slate terraces couldn't be any more fun to drink. It is a touch more luxurious than the previous edition, but still with a large amount of floral, dried herbs, and red and black berries with little noticeable tannins, previewing a medium-long finish. Savoury and balanced, it is a wine drinker's wine that can meet just about any dining occasion. Foods that work here include sausages, meaty pasta dishes, grilled beef, and medium-hard cheeses.
