Made from a 50/50 blend of carefully selected Garnacha and Cariñena grapes. The grapes come from different fincas located in Bellmunt del Priorat, Torroja del Priorat, and Vilella Baixa. All of the estates are organically farmed and have in common a similar steeply sloping slate soil, that is rich in mica, the black or dark "Llicorella," a type of very laminated and brittle slate that retains heat and helps the bunches ripen, which gives this wine its character and exceptional intensity. Limited production wines.
The grapes are rigorously selected, first by hand on the sorting table at the winery and afterwards by machine, using the latest state-of-the-art sorting machine.
Whole grapes are vinified separately in cement vats after a long maceration with low extraction. Aged in Slovenian oak foudres and amphorae.
Tasting Notes: Good aromatic intensity with notes of ripe black fruit and spicy and mineral hints. Excellent fruit weight in the mouth, good concentration, structured, silky tannins, nicely balanced acidity, long and persistent.
Notes: To drink during the next 5–6 years.
