80% of Grenache and 20% of Carinena. It is an ideal wine for daily drinking, and represents good value for money. It expresses the virtues of the MONTSANT Appellation of Origin very well: fruit and undergrowth aromas on the nose, on the palate, with good acidity and character.

"The 2010 Sere from Vendrell Rived is a lovely red comprised of a blend of eighty percent Garnacha and twenty percent Samso (Carignan), with the vast majority of the vines forty years of age. The winery and vineyards fall in the southern end of Montsant, very close to the Priorat border. The 2010 Sere, which tips the scales at a very moderate fourteen percent alcohol, offers up a lovely nose of red and black raspberries, meaty overtones, a fine base of stony soil, woodsmoke and a nice touch of coffee grounds. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with just a touch of backend tannin, lovely focus and midpalate depth and a very long, classy finish. Really a lovely bottle." John Gilman, View from the Cellar
