An intense purple colour, ripe red berries, sour cherry, nuances of chocolate and spices, soft and round on the attack, aroma rich and medium ampleness and full-bodied, marmalade character, nice concentration, round, moderate tannins continue into the finish. A good choice!

Located in the province of Tarragona, in Catalonia, the Priorat has 1700 hectares of vineyards and 62 wineries (bodegas). It can boast that it's the oldest wine region in Catalonia; the Romans grew vines in this area. In the Middle Ages, the Priorat was one of the primary wine regions in Spain. In 2001, it was awarded the highest level of quality in the kingdom, a DOCa,a privilege that was previously reserved only for the DO Rioja. This wine is stored for at least 6 months in new French Allier oak barrels.
