Sara Perez and René Barbier Jr “Dido” tinta project is their tribute to the youth, tenacity and love of Ganatxa.
This wine comes from a Falset plot of 10 hectares of degraded granite land called gravel. The sandy gravel structure and graceful texture changes temperature rapidly depending on the climate. Heated during the day and cooled at night, allowing the grapes a good and long ripening process towards maturation.
Garnatxa coming from this gravel is an explosive and fresh fruit expression. The deep dark color is due to the diurnal range of day and night temperatures, and we keep the berries whole and allow for an extended maceration on the skins. Our approach is non-intervention to truly express the place. The wine is fermented in clay amphora and concrete tanks. 40% remains to age in tank to emphasize the fruit. While 60% of the wine is aged for 16 months in different used wood barrels from 300 liters up to 4000 liters. Composition is 60% Garnatxa, 20% Sirà, and 20% Carinyena (Carignan)/Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
