Production: Elaborated from Grenache and Carignan centenarian vines with very low yields, planted around 1902 on hillsides of very steep slopes at an altitude of 350/450 metres above sea level, around the village of Poboleda. The soil is made up of the characteristic Slate, named “Licorella”.
The grapes are hand sorted both in the vineyard and the cellar to remove overripe grapes.
The wine has been aged for 16 months in new, very fine-grained French oak barrels.
The wine has been bottled without clarification or filtering.
Tasting Notes: Once of the best vintage with excellent freshness. Full-bodied and concentrated, with a good nose of very ripe black spice fruit, slight mineral, graphite notes. Dense and muscular, nicely balanced, with good fruit and creamy oak. Ripe tannins well integrated. Clean, healthy fruit, character and expression of region and vintage.
It is recommended to decant this wine at least 2 hours ahead before serving. This wine will keep well during the next 15 years and will gain even more complexity with the time in bottle.
