Reviews of purchase Orto Vins, "Orto", Montsant DO, 2016, 1.5 L
Wine of ruby color.
The rich, harmonious taste of the wine reveals accents of red fruits, floral undertones and spicy nuances of spices. On a pleasant tannin background, mineral touches are felt, which develop into a long, fresh and pleasant aftertaste.
The wine has an intense, refreshing aroma with accents of cherry, red berries, notes of lilac and delicate accents of rose petals. The bouquet is decorated with refined mineral notes.
The wine goes well with meat snacks, sausages, pastes, bruschettas and sun-dried tomatoes.
Dry red wine Orto Vins, "Orto" is created from a blend of red grape varieties grown in the region of Monsant (Catalonia). Grapes are harvested at different sites belonging to the farm, from vines, whose age is 20-90 years. The soils of the vineyards are rich in clay and limestone rocks, which affects the taste of the future wine, providing it with fresh mineral touches.
To create Ortho Vins, Ortho grapes are grown organically. The berries that have reached the required maturity are picked manually and sent to the winery. There grapes are pressed and subjected to maceration and fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The whole process takes 28 days. Then the wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.
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.
