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 a 25% at the end of 2000.
The emblematic wine of the Scala Dei Celler. A Grenache based wine with 25% Carignan, the autochthonous grapes varieties per excellence, carefully selected from different small plots, located on steep slopes, the traditional Costers, and soils rich in slate, the characteristic “llicorella” of the Priorat. Vinified partly full-cluster in concrete and partly destemmed grapes in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. Aged for 24 months in 1400-liter Foudres and 225-liter oak barriques.
Tasting notes: Delicious Grenache nose, ripe black fruit, plums, black cherries and black currants with a touch of violets and mineral scented nose. Well structured, complex wine with ripe fruit flavors, integrated oak, rounded and ripe, soft with a light vein of tannin over violets and spicy notes.
Notes: Drink now through 2023.
