D.O. Montsant (Catalonia)
Mas Donis Negre is a red wine from Montsant produced by Celler de Capçanes. It is a blend of Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%) varieties.
The grapes come from old vines between 30 and 60 years old, planted on clay and granite soils located on terraces. The Mas Donis Negre grapes, once they have been harvested, are macerated for 6 to 8 days. The two varieties are vinified separately.
The fermentation of the grapes takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of around 24-28º. The Mas Donis Negre wort then goes through malolactic fermentation, which takes place in tanks. For breeding, the Garnacha lies about four months in tankss and the Syrah for three to four months in barrels of French and American oak.
After aging, it proceeds to the final blend. Celler de Capçanes, located in the Priorat in Tarragona, produce unique and high quality wines. These include kosher wines, especially developed for the Jewish community.
