Venus La Universal Dido 2016

Venus “la Universal” is the project of partners, Sara Pérez and René Barbier Jr., children of influential wine producers of the Priorat D.O., Mas Martinet and Clos Mogador. Working in the Montsant D.O., they have been inspired by the goddess, Venus, with a goal to “interpret femininity through a bottle of wine”. Using organic farming and natural viticultural practices, Sara and René aim to transport you to this corner of Montsant through each glass of wine.

Dido La Universal is a young red wine from Montsant produced by the Venus La Universal winery. It's a blend of Garnacha, Syrah, Cariñena, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from five different growers. Maceration is rather short. The ageing, which lasts nine months, is partly in clay jars and partly in concrete tanks.

From their youngest vineyards, mostly under 30 years old, on granite soils that provide freshness and tension to compensate for the warmth of the southern Montsant, the wine is ruby red, with a sensual bouquet full of ripe fruit and slightly spicy. The Universal Dido Tinto has beautiful notes of red and black fruit, light oak notes and some cedarwood impressions with a particularly long finish.
