Carignan Monfort, from the Israeli company Barkan, is a nice, round, aromatic wine, which prevails in the blend Carignano grape variety (85%), supplemented by a small proportion of grape Argaman (15%). Sort Carignano prefers warm, dry climate, so well adapted to the microclimate of Israel. This grape has a good acidity, its aroma is dominated by notes of dark and red berries, pepper, licorice and spices, but the lack of good body and color depth can use it primarily as a part of blends. Grape varieties used Argaman blended to adjust the color of wine, it also has a sweet fruity taste and soft tannins. The two grape varieties complement each other perfectly, and elegant wine lovers will appreciate the soft, velvety taste and a pleasant berry flavor drink.
