A blessed drop on Sunday – La Comedia, Montsant 2011

La comedia wine

This full bodied drop is from one of the sub-regions in Spain, actually from COMUNIDAD AUTÓNOMA DE CATALUÑA where you will find close to 250 wineries. Tarragona is in the northern part of Spain and Montstat (sacred mountain) sits just west of Tarragona, off the Mediterranean coastline. It is possible the Ancient Greeks planted the vines followed by the Romans who produced the wines. The region also produced much of the alter wine for Christian ceremonies and continues to export church wines. La Comedia is a nice drop of Garnacha with a blend of blueberry-scented Cariñena and has sufficient acidity to hold it all together. Best consumed at 15℃ (59℉) and a good match with roast chicken, lamb or veal. You can find this wine at:
