Wine & Spirits 2020Mas Picosa red 2019: Best Buy “A blend of Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo designed to be light and refreshing, this is pretty peppery, with notes of cranberry that would complement a roasted pork loin.”
International Wine Awards 2020 Mas Picosa 2019: GOLD
James Suckling about Mas Picosa red 2017: “Very dark nose with tons of black cherries and plums plus a hint of bitter chocolate, but a freshness that pulls you into the powerful and quite concentrated palate, where the generous, soft tannins are beautifully integrated. Long, powdery finish. Delicious now, but should hold through at least 2024.” 93 Points
Guía Peñín about Mas Picosa red 2017: “5 stars! There is a good quality price relation. Ecological.” 91 Points
Cherry colour with violet reflections.
Intense aromas of red fruits.
Quite voluptuous and persistent due to the “crianza” on the lees.

Serve at around 17°C.
