Ferrer Bobet Selecció Especial 2016 (96 VM)
“Dark violet. Powerful, spice- and mineral-accented boysenberry, cherry and incense aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied violet, vanilla and licorice. Vibrant and sharply defined on the palate, offering mineral-laced black and blue fruit, spicecake and cola flavors that deepen and become spicier through the midpalate. Densely packed yet graceful in character, with velvety tannins lending shape and grip to the strikingly long, penetrating finish, which leaves repeating blue fruit, spice and floral notes behind.”
Selecció Especial is 100% Carignane from hundred year old vines in some of the best vineyards in Priorat, in one of the coolest, steepest and highest elevations of the appellation, factors which contribute to optimal phenolic ripeness and help preserve flavors and acidity. A wine of truly profound fruit and minerality.
Ferrer Bobet is about respect. Firstly, the mutual respect of two friends, Sergi Ferrer-Salat and Raül Bobet and their passion for the world and culture of wine. Secondly, the respect for the long traditions of viticulture and vinification in Priorat and a commitment to the economic and social development of the region. Thirdly, and above all, the respect for the terroir and a dedication to producing wines that reflect the distinctive mineral essence from the land.
