MODERNISM
ART

The cellar from l'Espluga de Francolí was named Catedral del Vi (Wine Cathedral) by the catalan writer Àngel Guimerà. This denomination was soon used for other cellars built at the beginning of the 20th century by architects such Cèsar Martinell, follower of Antoni Gaudí, and Domenech i Montaner and his son Pere Domènech Roura.

If you want to know more about modernism art and how it was applied to the wine-growing agro-industry, come and visit the cellars in l'Espluga de Francolí, Barberà de la Conca or Vila-rodona, a real work of art.

Visual examination

A red wine of noble appearance, intense colour of elegant cherry-red or very ripe plum, dark and rather dull, as is usual in mature crianza wines.

Aroma examination

In the nose, a concentration of very ripe fruit of thick texture. Black plums, blackberries and dried figs. Its aromatic complexity is revealed gradually,with a variety of well combined shades.
The aromas of various spices, especially black pepper, walnut and vanilla.
All of these features enhanced by the use of excellent oak barrels which add a complexity to the overall aroma,which however, do not hide the effect of the wood itself, which rounds off and blends aromas and flavour.

Taste examination

In the mouth, after the initial aromatic complexity, this wine is full-bodied, tasty and well structured. Perfect balance between smoothness, acidity and tannins, the latter of which are mature but firm, coming as they do from grapes well matured by the sun.
Aftertaste is ample and long, with a clean, aromatic ending.

Final impression

A great wine. With character, potent and fine.

Optimum consumption

Already a great wine, it is endowed with a long life which maintains its quality and may even improve it with time.

Gastronomy

Red meats and all kinds of game, sauces, mature cheeses, "ibérico" sausages.

Ideal temperature

The area of Penedès was inhabited and cultivated from the 6th century BC by an iberian tribe called Cossetans.
This wine is a tribute to millenia of agricultural tradition in the Penedès region.
