Characteristics of Domus Pensi

Domus Pensi is a red wine from the Terra Alta region, produced by Altavins Viticultors. This wine is a blend of Sauvignon (45%), Garnacha (30%), Syrah (15%) and Merlot (15%) grapes.

The grapes used to make this wine are provided by various farms operated by the winery. The vines themselves are over 30 years old, and the soil is ideal for growing grapes since it is calcareous and silty, with low permeability and poor in organic matter. This results in the great taste and intense aroma of the fruit. The harvest is carried out manually and the grapes are transported in small boxes of no more than 20kgs to ensure that they do not break of lose their qualities.

On arrival at the winery, the grapes that make Domus Pensi pass through the phases of fermentation and maceration, always below the temperature 29º. These processes last 26 days in total, and occur in stainless Steel tanks.

Domus Pensi is a limited product, with only 5,000 bottles made. It is also recomended that you decant this wine before you enjoy it.

Altavins Viticultors is a relatively new company, having been found in 2001 by Joan Bautista Arrufí and Jordi Casadó. The winery has produced 150,000; however the Altavins Viticultors winery has made it clear, the important thing is not quantity, but quality.

Tasting notes Domus Pensi

Sight Intense dark red, almost black, with red ruby â??â??and some purple reflections. Clean and bright wine with abunant dense tears that stain the glass. Nose Intense and complex aromas. Initially, a great load of ripe black fruit is released. When it opens up, it gains in expressivity and touches of candied fruit appear along with sweet spices (vanilla and cinnamon), some oriental spices (clove) and notes of chocolate and coffee. Some elegant touches of toasted, purple flowers and minerals are also notied that remind us of earth. Elegant balsamic background with subtle hints of Mediterranean herbs. Taste An elegant, complex, meaty, nice and round wine, intense at the attack, powerful but very pleasant. It has a long, dense and flavourful mid palate, with very expressive notes already felt in the nose and a good acidity that balances the whole set. Slightly dry tannins, which will improve with a bit of time. Long and persistent finish. A very nice, enjoyable and flavourful wine.
Sight Intense red color with violet hues. Nose Complex aroma of red fruits, plums, raisins, notes of cocoa and roasted coffee. Taste Smooth but emphatic entry evolution, sweet tannin sensation intensified by alcohol. In the aftertaste remembers the plum jam. Long after-taste.

Designation of Origin D.O. Terra Alta

Winery Altavins Viticultors

Wines from Terra Alta boast a unique character. This is down to numerous factors, including the region's unique wine culture, the location of the vineyards in the inland Mediterranean, and the abundance of native varieties including the Garnacha Blanca, whose white wines perhaps best express the unique character of the terroir. It is for this reason that these wines hold their own distinctive classification of “Terra Alta Garnacha Blanca”.
