Altavins is a small winery located in the Terra Alta D.O., southwest of Catalonia. It was founded in 2001 by Joan Bautista and Jordi Casado. Their vineyards are planted between 350-500 meters above sea level on a variety of soils, well drained, rich in lime and low in organic matter. The nature of the soils provides their grapes with an exceptionally high concentration of minerals, this together with the considerable difference of temperature between nights and days while the grapes are ripening maximises the aromas and flavours of the grapes. Actually, the winery produces a nice range of the highest quality wines to suit all possible tastes.
Tasting Notes: Intense aromas, infused with ripe red fruit, a distinct spiciness, herbaceous notes, Mediterranean herbs type and balsamic. Well-structured, complex with rich fruit flavors, warm and inviting, sweet tannis and good acidity. Finishing persistent and long
Notes: A wine with good ageing potential. Drinking nicely now and over the next decade.
