Masdeu is a single-vineyard wine of very small production that is part of Ricard Rofes' “Proyecto Garnachas”, the celler’s winemaker. A series of three Garnachas sourced from various plots with different soil types and altitudes.
Masdeu is a “Vi de Vila d’Escaladei” from a single foudre, aged over a year in one single 1400-liter oak foudre. The grapes are sourced from clay and chalky soils from the higher altitude vineyard, “Masdeu”, a terraced plot that gives the name to the wine, planted in 1974 and situated at 800 meters above sea level in the Monsant Mountains with a south-east exposure.
The Priory of Scala Dei, founded in 1163, was the first monastery on the peninsula and planted the region’s first grapes. For this reason, the bodega is emblematic of Priorat. The current owners took over in 1973, and Codorniu bought 25% at the end of 2000.
Ripe, slightly earthy fruit with cherry and raspberry aromas, Mediterranean herbs, and forest fruits. Intense, succulent berry fruit on the palate, subtle oak, minerality, good acidity with marked tannins, and a warm, elegant finish.
Notes: It is recommended to open and decant the wine in advance to achieve its maximum potential.
