Characteristics of Dido La Universal

Dido La Universal is a young eco red wine from Montsant produced by the Venus La Universal winery. It is a blend in which the predominance of Grenache, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are evident.

The grapes for this wine comes from a farm of 10 hectares on weathered granite. The characteristics of granite make it easy to change temperature, warm during the day and cool at night. This peculiarity means that a long and good maturation occurs.

Fermentations occur with unselected yeasts in order to try to maintain the aromatic and structural diversity.

On the other hand, the maceration is rather short. The aging, which lasts nine months, is partly in clay jars and partly in concrete tanks.


Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Roasted red meats, Stews, Goat cheese, Rice with meat, Blue fish, Iberian ham
