Production: Sourced from still quite young Grenache vines from a small parcel planted on llicorella and farmed biodynamically. The grapes have been hand-sorted.

Today their vineyards are fully recognised and certified by the Catalan organic farming council (CCPAE) and they also apply preparations based on biodynamic farming methods, as following the calendar of the planets in both vineyards and winery.
Planetes is the first "Vi de la Vila" from Porrera to come out in the market in the 2008 vintage. The new legislation introduced in 2009 by the DOQ Priorat, recognises and protects each region´s different characteristics, vinicultural, climatic, soil, etc.with the purpose of highlighting their particular characteristics.
Tasting Notes: Nicely perfumed and elegant fresh fruit, black cherry and subtle mineral notes on the nose. Elegant and long; soft, silky and friendly on the palate. Good acidity and freshness with nicely rounded, soft, velvety tannins. A wine that speaks clearly of its origins.
Notes: It is recommended to keep for at least a year for its optimum consume and will drink well during the next decade. It would improve greatly with 2 hours ahead decanting or letting the wine breathe in the glass in order to achieve Its maximum flavours.
