2005 Sinols Emporadlia Coromina, Empordà

( E9, 13.5%, El Celler Petit )

An unusual wine: mature, unoaked Samsó (Carignan) that was fermented and aged in cement. It’s on the rustic side, with a hint of volatility, but there’s no denying that the wine is true to its varietal with chunky, slightly drying tannins but lots of gutsy personality.
