Production: A very personal and unique wine from Joan Asens, the first vintage with a very small production, just 300 bottles made, in homage to his son, Genís. La coma del Genis is a small plot from the vineyard “La coma del Nicolau” planted with Picapoll negre by Genís Asens in 2010. This small plot of just 0.25 ha of calcareous soils and pebbles is located at an altitude of 140 meters above sea level in the municipal district of El Masroig. Traditional farmed following organic methods, the wine has been elaborated at the Cooperative del Molar Celler. Made exclusively with Picapoll Negre, whole cluster fermented in 500 liter open oak vats at controlled temperature of 20ºC. Aged during 6 months in a 400 liter barrel of 10 years.
Optimum consumption time during the next 10 years.
Orto vins started in 2008 as the result of a joint project from 4 vine growers from El Masroig, small village inside the appellation of Montsant in the Catalonia region. Jordi Beltran, Josep Mª Beltran, Josep Mª Jové and Joan Asens. All of them come from families with a long tradition in vine growing. With this project headed by Joan Asens, an experienced oenologist, and best known for his work during 15 years in Alvaro Palacio`s winery in Gratallops, where he was in charge of the viticulture and vinification side, they return to their origins continuing to blend the finest quality wines, from their own vineyards, according to their traditions.
Tasting Notes: Lighter coloured, pleasant aromatic nose, red fruits, subtle and delicate, long and easy to drink.
