The Mas Collet wine from the Celler de Capçanes is once again the wine recommended by the editors of the newspaper “Montreal Gazette”, one of the most influential media in Quebec.
Bill Zacharkiw, renowned Canadian wine prescriber and contributor to the newspaper since 2007, chooses the wines of the week, among which stands out Mas Collet, D.O. Montsant del Celler de Capçanes, for its blend of Garnacha, Cariñena (also called Samsó), and Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cariñena and Cabernet Sauvignon bring structure and tannic load to the wine, making it a full-bodied wine with good unctuousness.
