2019 Castell d'Age ‘Fragments’ Negre: Penedès, Spain

$18.00

Tasting Notes

This wine is meant to drink young and fresh! It starts off with a deep cherry color with purple tones. The nose has sweet forest fruits aromas, such as woodland strawberries, raspberries and some subtle lactic hints at the end which is all confirmed on the palate. Fresh, balanced and long is the take away from this wine! Pair this wine with pasta a la napolitana or just drink it on its own!

Winery Details

Gods who decided to place Castell d’Age in the Alt Penedès. On the southern slope of the mysterious, sacred mountain of Montserrat. In the small village of La Beguda Baixa. A very special land, destined to uphold the long-standing traditions of our ancestors. Yet, at the same time, open to new initiatives. With a single objective: to produce exceptional wines and cavas.

It was all started by Aurèlia Figueras. A woman ahead of her time. An intelligent woman, she knew how to breathe life into the lands that had belonged to her family for over 50 years.

Anne Marie Comtesse was the inspiration behind the creation of the cellars, located in an 18th Century country house, at the end of the 1980’s. Champion of products from the land. A fighter. Committed to the environment. She pioneered the introduction of organic farming.

Olivia Junyent is the daughter and granddaughter of two exceptional women. Respecting the family ethos of doing things the traditional way. A fighter. Along with her siblings, she represents current trends in the field of organic viticulture.
