En Números Vermells is Silvia Puig’s individual project, a young but very experienced winemaker with a formidable C.V. when it comes to winemaking and belonging to a new generation of winemakers in the Priorat. She makes small amounts of amazing wines in a very artisanal way. It started with producing just 1 single barrique in 2008 in a small garage converted for this in the village of Torroja, now she has her own place in the village of Gratallops where she produces the wines. All the fruit is carefully selected from different plots staggered in Costers (Catalán word meaning steeply slopes) and terraces with soils dominated by the characteristic “llicorella” or slate in different points of the Priorat.
Production: The Aiaiai is a young and pleasant priorat wine sourced from the youngest vines, between 15 and 30 years old, its cuvee is mainly Grenache (both Negra and peluda, “hairy Grenache”), Carignan with a touch of Syrah and Merlot. The fruit is sourced from different vineyards across Priorat, the Syrah, Merlot and most of the Grenache comes from Poboleda, the Hairy Grenache comes from Bellmunt del Priorat and from Torroja, the Carignana and part of the Grenache. Fermentation takes place in small stainless-steel containers each variety separately. Aged during approximately 8 months in 2º and 3rd year barriques and in clay amphoras. Lightly filtered before bottling. Production of 3200 bottles
Tasting Notes: Classy mature black fruit nose, plum, blackberry, cherry with hints of licorice and cocoa. A smooth full bodied flavoursome wine, nicely balanced with good minerality, fruit and spiciness, slightly smoky notes on a pleasant and rich finish.
