Excellent value for money, and a remarkably good wine!
This is a bold, big red with a good complexity on the nose and palate, and a pleasant level of tannins. It is comparable to other very good and considerably more pricey wines from Montsant and Priorat (it is a blend of Samsó = Carignan and Grenache). Also, it has a level of acidity that makes it promising for laying it down in the cellar for a couple of years at least -- I expect it will improve considerably.This goes well with red meats or dishes with strong flavours.
This is a fine example of the quality of Grenache. A very well produced wine from the Montsant region. Full bodied, fruity yet almost smokey, good finish on the palate. A lovely wine that has gone to the top of my favourites list.
Excellent red from one of my favourite regions
Lovely black fruit flavours with a hint of oak and chocolate. Medium tannin and enough acidity to make it "balanced". Very, very drinkable. I only bought one bottle so I'd better order a few more.
This is a beautiful combination of carignan and grenache, deep colour and fine youthful fruity flavour. Berries, slightly smokey and good length. A delicious wine for any occasion.
I really like this wine. Coming from an area I'm biginning to really appreciate, this a real food wine, deep almost chewy, lots of dark berry fruits. Beautiful.

Acústic Celler is the personal project of Albert Jané (of Jané Ventura, Penedès) in the Montsant appellation, with a very specific philosophy: advocating a return to traditional vine-growing methods, by avoiding an excessive use of technology and allowing the vineyards full expression of their particular character in the most natural way possible.
