Producer: Joan D'Anguera
Planella is comprised Carignan sourced from 15 to 50 year old vines growing in the stony, calcareous soils of Finca Planella vineyard’s north-facing slopes.
Concrete fermentation is followed by 12 months of aging in old oak barrels. As with Joan d'Anguera’s other wines, the Planella is naturally cold stabilized by the winter’’s chill and bottled unﬁltered.
Bright violet in colour, the vintage is truly Mediterranean in its proﬁle. The fragrant nose expresses notes of strawberries and ﬂowers with touches of fennel. On the palate, fresh red berries, Asian spices and anise are balanced with good minerality and acidity.
Bright and youthfully, the impressive ﬁnish provides lingering spiciness.This wine will put on weight with a few more years of bottle age but holds plenty of appeal for those who can’t wait.
