Mont Rubi Durona
A sumptuous red blend from Penedes, Northern Spain - Summoll (rustic black grape native to the region), Garnacha & Carinena from vines planted in 1955.
Cold prefermentation maceration and gentle extraction via pigeage (punchdown) followed by a 45 day maceration during fermentation. After fermentation is complete, 12 months of aging in 300 l. French oak barrels (30% new oak, 35% 2nd. year used oak and 35% 3rd. year used oak) and 24 months in the bottle.
Durona is the name of the area at the L’Avella property of Heretat MontRubi where Sumoll is cultivated. The wine’s color is an intense Tyrian purple with a complex nose of wild fruits and warm spices underscored by a subtle mineral nuance. The palate follows with a delicious combination of black and purple fruits and herbs that is decidedly Mediterranean in style, accented slightly by a delicate use of oak.
