Terroir Sense Fronteres places the spotlight on the DO Montsant, a region Dominik believes to hold enormous potential. High up on the Montsant Mountain and right across the DO border from our prized Manyes vineyard in Priorat, 60-year old Garnacha vines produce extremely concentrated, flavor-rich fruit. Early harvests, whole cluster fermentations, gentle extractions, and a complete lack of oak during the aging process results in wines of great finesse and a distinctly Mediterranean style.
The Grenache fruit shines with a wild beauty, elegance and whimsy untouched by any oak contact. Enticing aromas of crunchy cherry and blackberry lead into an herbal yet ethereal brilliance that refuses to be pinned down. Medium-bodied, with silky red fruit flavors, deep spice and hints of licorice. A wine of equal parts ease and elegance, rugged and refined, and woven with a web of fine-grained tannins and a lingering mineral finish. An incredible homage to the cool Montsant slopes with body, structure, and enough freshness to honor any Mediterranean fare.

The Capçanes village red 2019 Negre was produced with 75% Garnacha and 25% Cariñena from organically farmed vineyards on clay soils, fermented in stainless steel with full clusters (they don't have a destemmer here or in Priorat) and bottled unoaked after six months. It has aromas of licorice and Mediterranean herbs. It has character and is light and ethereal, in the direction of the 2018, with fine-grained tannins and a stony sensation in the mouthfeel. This is incredible; it has 12.5% alcohol and is fluid, fresh and incredibly easy to drink. This is young but very approachable.

This is the entry-level wine from Giuseppe Russo, but it is in no way a 'basic' wine. A blend of his three single vineyards (Feudo, Feudo di Mezzo, San Lorenzo),...
