The wine advocate 2016:

  • La Nit dels Garnatxes Calissa 2015: 88 Points. The wine is intensely fruity and young, with a bit of a raw nose reminiscent of young must. It's fresh and straightforward, with fine tannins and good freshness.

"It seems like some deep changes have happened at the cooperative of Capçanes with a new technical team and a new direction towards finer, more complex and delicate wines with judicious use of oak, fruit-driven and fresher."
