La Tina 2011 FITOU Château Champ des Sœurs
Fitou is a red-wine appellation at the heart of the southern France's Languedoc-Roussillon wine region. The 'Fitou' from which the wine (and therefore the appellation) gets its name is a small village just a few miles from the Mediterranean coast.
The typical Fitou wine is not markedly different from the reds made in neighboring Corbieres (i.e. rustic, herby, leather-scented, medium-bodied and moderately tannic). The dominant grape varieties in Fitou wines are Carignan and Grenache. Together this pair must constitute at least 60% of the blend. (Wine Searcher)
