Details for Can Noves 2014
Bottle size and vintage
Just outside Girona, in the small village of Sant Martí Vell, surrounded by forests and in soils originally volcanic, the vines of the EccociWine winery have taken root. Their wines can't come under the Empordà DO due to their location, however vine growing in this Girona district goes back a very long way.
The winery's philosophy is to take good care of the countryside which in return will allow them to reap its rewards. Thus, wines made by EccociWine clearly denote their setting, as Can Noves Negre goes to show, the winery's semi-Crianza red that's proving a big hit with specialist critics and ordinary consumers alike.
It's made with Bordeaux varieties, perfectly adapted to the region and harvested by hand, which are then vinified separately, with the clear objective of obtaining the maximum expressiveness possible from each of them. It exhibits a nose evocative of wild black fruit (blackberries and very ripe blueberries) and ash on a lactic background. Subtle suggestions of toasted almond skin bring to mind restrained oak and the odd hint of orange peel rounds off the ensemble. Its palate is juicy, spicy, with elegant rounded tannins. Superb acidity takes it energetically right through to a dry, delicate and totally well-balanced finish in which feint hints of cocoa and intense mineral notes can be discerned. Decanting is advisable in order to enjoy it fully.
