Characteristics of Atrium Cabernet Sauvignon
The name and the label of this red wine from Penedes, is a reference to the room that old roman houses used to have where music was played while eating and enjoying wine.
Atrium Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 goes through an ageing of 12 months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new.

Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
