Franscesc writes:  "What we see here in this wine is something that we locally call “Lo vi fa Sang” which is  best described as the power of a wine that provides energy and force to keep fighting and moving forward. The wine is made from Garnacha Fina, Garnacha Peluda, and Carignan, all three varieties of which from the same vineyard, the Dellà del Riu. Here, you can find the three varieties mixed together as they were planted historically. Herefore, we also vinify them together. These vines are more than 65 years old and are planted in the middle of almond, olive, and apple trees. The wine has matured for one year in 300L barrels to bring harmony to the fruit of our land. This is a wine made with passion, as we want to make our history and our people known through this wine."
