D.O. Empordà (Catalonia)
Comabruna is a red wine from the Empordà prepared by the Espelt bodega.
Comabruna is a single-Carignan. The grapes come from very old vines, 111 years old, planted on slopes of slate soils in the Rabós area in the Alt Empordà (Girona). The performance of the vineyards is very low, approximately 2500kg /h.
In summer, the sun and north wind ensure that the grapes enjoy a good balance between ripeness and acidity.
The development of Comabruna begins with a manual harvest in boxes of 15kg and a manual selection in the vineyard.
Once in the winery the must undergoes a pre-fermentation and cold maceration for three days. After, the wort is fermented at a controlled temperature of 28°C before finishing with a post-fermentation maceration for 10 days.
Finally the wine is aged for 18 months in 500 litre Bordeaux vats.
