Massard Saviesa 2018
As a reflection of the "terroir" of the region, Franck Massard has managed to produce 100% old Cariñena (Carignan) from only 3 hectares. A pure and beautiful reflection of the land and the variety. The goal was to demonstrate, in a glass, the essence of the Cariñena, the most interesting indigenous variety in the Montsant region of Spain.
Tasting NotesThe 2018 vintage presents some very subtle aromas but at the same time powerful once allowed to aerate in the glass. Despite its youth, the wine is very well balanced. The palate is complex, highlighting again the Mediterranean aromas, balsamic and dark fruits. It is a wine with a good acidity that is already very integrated and that brings the wine that characteristic freshness.
A food wine; Carignan has a balanced flavor profile without bitter tannin, and thus the wine tends to act more like an ingredient when paired with food. Because of its medium-bodied style, it will go with big, bold dishes as well as lighter ones - from a burger to turkey breast on Christmas eve!
