Barbara Fores, 2010 Coma d'En Pou
Variety: Red blend
Region: Terra Alta
This wine….. The top wine from Barbara Fores. Coma d'En Pou is a powerful full bodied red, that benefits from time in the decanter. Coming from the lesser know region of Terra Alta, the quality of the wine would be difficult to match at the same price point from more prestigious regions.
A visit to Barbara Fores is a family experience. Mari Carmen De Bàrbara Forés is the mother and matriarch of the winery. A skilled hand shown through the balance, depth, complexity and purity across the range of wines. The wines carry with them personality reflecting the character of the each of the vineyards. Indigenous varieties such as the red grape variety Morenillo, are seeing a renaissance thanks to the efforts of people like Mari. To show the importance and character of the indigenous grapes versus the more commercial varieties, which have been planted in recent years.
