Winemaker: Toni Carbó

Another cool wine from Toni Carbó (who also makes the Roig Boig Pet’nat in this month’s box) and his best friend/biz partner Ramón Jané, from Jané’s family vineyards on the hills of Peñedes that have never seen chemicals. A blend of red and white grapes (a combo that keeps things fresh and energetic), this is clean, delicious, no-added sulfur Spanish glou-glou that we could drink all day, every day. Super refreshing with light but intense cherry and cassis fruit, and a salty, herbal finish. IMPORTANT SERVING NOTES: give it a slight chill – 30 minutes is perfect – and some air before drinking. Either decant, or pour out a glass and let it breathe. And finish the same day you open – it isn’t the same the next day. Which shouldn’t be a problem, as it is so light and juicy that it feels almost healthy…
