Llenca Plana 2017

Llenca Plana

The winery is located in La Serra d'Almos (Montsant). Only owned vineyards where we practice respectful viticulture under our own philosophy. The name of the vineyard means "Flat Stone", named after the shape of the property.

About the Vineyard

Llenca Plana's vineyard is located in La Serra d'Almos where it benefits from the Mediterranean climate. We chose the vineyard because of its features and location. Ideal terroir conditions for the development of the Carignane,  the most characteristic grape in the area.

Wine Production

Depending on the circumstances of the vintage we choose the vinification techniques and the aging barrels with the aim of producing the best possible wine.

Tasting Notes

Rich and complex, with a lengthy finish. Intense red and black fruit flavors are balanced with smooth tannins and fresh acidity.
