Characteristics of Idoia Negre
Idoia Negre is a red wine from the D.O. Catalunya made by Ca N'Estruc, a small winery whose roots date back to 1548, situated on the hillside of the Montserrat moutains.
This wine is made with Syrah and Grenache grapes according to the traditional winemaking process. The grapes go through the process separately according to variety and age. The wine then ferments in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature with daily pump-overs for about 15 days.
The wine has been aged for 12 months in French oak barrels from Allier from different cooperages. The barrels are new, one and two years old, and medium-toasted.
Serve at 16ºC

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
