Elaboration (vinification)
This wine pursues three things: freshness, fruit and zone personality. It represents for us a clear example of what a Conca de Barberà wine is. It is the expression of the varietals that locate the wine with its place of origin. The breeding, very respectful, is carried out in foudres of four thousand liters and in cement tanks for a year. We find a wine markedly from La Conca, with the typical touches of white pepper coming from the Trepat, accompanied by the Garrut that dresses the backbone of the wine, Garnatxa the greedy part, wrapping and rounded with Ull de llebre.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The Trepat grape used for the Abadia de Poblet Tinto, comes from vines planted during the first half of the twentieth century, in areas that historically had been vineyards, but in which the cultivation of cereals was alternated between the rows of vines and with almonds planted at edge of the vineyards, bringing together the three Mediterranean crops typical of the Conca de Barberà. Old vineyards with south and southeast orientation in poor lands and at heights that go in the case of Trepat from 550 to 600 meters. Low yields, help find a Trepat with good concentration and with the expression of the land where it comes from. The Garrut of vines about 20 years old is located near the Monestir de Poblet in richer soils mixed slate and sands. The vineyards of Ull de Llebre and Garnacha are lined by the Prades mountains around 700 meters high and on floors marked by a mixture of slate and clay, the vines of both varietals oriented to the northeast.
