Details for Isabel Negra 2016
Bottle size and vintage
This is a special wine dedicated by Manuel Raventós to his mother, Isabel Negra, a key figure in the winery's history. It is made using fruit from Cabernet Sauvignon vines more than 30 years old, with the addition of 10% Monastrell grapes that supply further complexity and nuances, creating a wine which is then carefully aged to provide harmony between grapes and oak.
