Reviews of purchase Orto Vins, "Les Tallades de Cal Nicolau", Montsant DO, 2013
The wine is rich red cherry color.
Fresh, elegant, balanced wine with a rich fruity taste. A beautiful mineral palette emphasizes the freshness of the taste chord and successfully combines with harmonious acidity. A long, steady finish with piquant touches.
The wine has a deep, complex and intense aroma with a predominance of red fruit accents and expressive floral undertones. The bouquet is decorated with intriguing touches of balsamic.
The wine goes well with red meat, roast, grilled meat, as well as aged cheeses.
Orto Vins, "Les Tallades de Cal Nicolau", Montsant DO - one of the four monosortovye wines of the company Orto Vins, which is made from a rare variety of Pickapol Noir. Grapes are grown on a site planted back in 1880 by the great-grandfather of the current owner, Juan Asens, one of the four founders of the modern winery. At one time, the vines of the vineyard were able to overcome the phylloxera epidemic, and new vines were grown in stock - by grafting and exclusively in an organic way.
Hand-picked grapes are fermented in 500-liter barrels and macerated for 28 days. After pressing, the wine is placed in old oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging for 12 months.
Ortho is the time when a star crosses the horizon and becomes visible in the sky, the time when a new day is born. And according to Greek etymology, “ortho” is a prefix meaning “right”, “beautiful”. So the owners of Orto Vins themselves interpret the name of their brainchild. The winery was created in 2008 by oenologist Juan Asens, who rallied the idea of creating exquisite wines of his three childhood friends. For almost 18 years, Juan has been engaged in viticulture in the famous Priorat winery - Alvaro Palacios. In addition, Asens was considered a “biodynamic guru” and worked at the University of Catalonia. The accumulated knowledge and invaluable experience allowed him to create a company that for ten years has been successfully competing in the market. Orto Vins wines are produced according to biodynamic principles, demonstrate softness and elegant tannin and, as a rule, low alcohol content.
