Drink now through to 2026. No need to decant before serving.

Opening with enchanting aromas of crushed plums and cherries, dried fruit and hints of violets, this seductive red wine immediately reminds of the sun-baked Spanish slopes which gave it life. Named after the local word for “courage”, Brao is the kind of wine which strengthens and nourishes both the soul and the body with its the harmonious combination of sensuous dark fruit, silky smooth texture and gentle tannins.

Winemaker Albert Jané carefully sources the grapes for Brao from 30 to 40 year old vines in some of Montsant’s finest sub-regions. Here the poor, arid soils force the vines to dig deep for nutrients and water which helps to create wines with deep, intense flavours and breathtaking complexity. To craft the best possible wines from this tough terrain, Albert practices organic farming and hand harvests all of the Garnacha and Carinena grapes which go into this bottle.

After the grape must has been vinified Albert ages the wine in new French oak barrels to add hints of toast and sweet spices. Try serving Brao alongside duck magret, a delicate quail dish or grilled mushrooms to enhance the earthy, savoury character of the wine.
