2018 COMENGE FAMILIA RESERVA

Grape Varieties : 100% Tempranillo

Medium-high depth, black cherry in the glass with garnet highlights, bright and very clean.

Intense and spicy on the nose. Prominence of liquorice, ripe red fruit, fennel, aromatic herbs and balsamic sensations. Thebouquet of this Tempranillo leaves hardly any room for hints of spices from the oak, caramel, vanilla, cocoa…

The mouth is gentle and big, but not opulent, showing the great quality of its very fine and sweet tannins at all times. The nose is somewhat less fruity and more spicy; we again come across the ripe red fruit, but also vanilla, caramel, scrubland herbs and liquorice, adding complexity to the wine overall. The aftertaste is very long and silky, leaving a fresh sensation that makes the wine easy to drink.

About the winery

The landscape can also be drunk.

When, back in 1999, Jaime Comenge started working on his desire to make wine, his ideas were clear: the vineyard is the fundamental pillar of the character and personality of a wine and it therefore needs to be considered in each stage of the winemaking process. With this idea in mind, Bodegas Comenge has created its own winemaking philosophy based on innovation and research to express the true charm of our vineyard in the purest and most genuine way possible. The important element is production.

Our vines are certified as grown using 100% organic methods. This has a direct effect on the flavour of the grapes and our wines. Production levels are small: we maintain the plant cover, turning the vineyard into a natural garden, into a diverse ecosystem that adds balance to the vine and is good for our health.

The wines are born in the vineyard. Our oenologist’s work is important, but the most important thing is not to hide the terroir, expressed in each vintage in an elegant and balanced way.
