Capafons-OssoAll products from this vendor
Семейство Капафонс-Оссо занимается виноделием и уходом за виноградниками на протяжении пяти поколений – от прапрадедов, которые в свое время начали работу на земле винодельни Mas de Masos, до сегодняшних дней. Каждое поколение вкладывало свой труд и знания в семейное дело, стремясь создать вино лучшего качества из собранного на этих полях винограда. Cellers Capafons-Ossó объединяет традиции с поиском новых подходов: производимые из местных сортов вина улучшаются, проводятся эксперименты с новыми сортами винограда. Для совершенствования процессов выращивания винограда и вкуса вина на винодельне используются современные системы контроля. Винодельня Capafons-Ossó владеет двумя виноградниками в соседних регионах ‒ Монтсант и Приорат. Виноградники очень отличаются друг от друга из-за количества солнечного света, погодных условий, выращиваемых сортов винограда, а также исторических и географических условий.
Cabernet SauvignonAll products from this varietal
Cabernet Sauvignon wines shows a strong body, high acidity and high levels of tannins. A bouquet is very intensive, with black berries and spices. Very often these wines has great aging potential.
Priorat is a small, dynamic wine-growing region in Catalonia, northeastern Spain, whose rich and full-bodied red wines have gained prominence especially in recent decades. The classic Priorat wine is made from old Garnacha and Carinena grapes and has a concentrated aroma of licorice, tar and liqueur cherries. Priorat's red wine (the region also produces small amounts of white and rosé) stands out in three main ways. Firstly, it is one of the very few Garnacha-based wines in the world, joined only by the Châteauneuf-du-Pape French red wines from the Rhone Valley and some premium wines from California. Secondly, Spain's top-level DOC classification is just one of two regions (the other is Rioja). And, thirdly, Priorat has turned from almost unknown on the international market into a producer of some of the most expensive wines in the world. The hot and dry vineyards in Spain are notable for their low yields, even by Spanish standards, the Priorat's yield is extremely low - on average less than 5 hl / ha (the average in Spain is 25 hl / ha). Yield is closely related to quality: the lower the yield, the higher the quality. The very low yields of Priorat wines are due to three main reasons: climate, nutrient-poor soil and the age of the vines.
In Catalonia, DO status was first created in 1999, and it became the first regional production area in Spain, which united all vineyards not included in any of the 11 existing DOs at that time. The capital of Catalonia is Barcelona, the second largest city in Spain with one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean. Its seaside location has certainly contributed to the development of local winemaking. Catalonia has a wide variety of winemaking traditions. It is believed that the skills of viticulture were first introduced by the Phoenicians and Greeks around 400 BC. e. The Romans then expanded viticulture and the industry flourished until the Moorish occupation. Then the vineyards were abandoned or given for other purposes. Later Christians revived viticulture in the territories adjacent to the monasteries. Until the end of the 18th century, wine and spirits were among the most important exports in the region. Since then, Catalonia has established itself as a dynamically developing wine region.
