Since 1978 Pere Sangenís and Conxita Vaqué are making wines in Porrera, combining the tradition with the new ways. Today María and Núria Sangenís, their two daughters, have also joined the team who, alongside Pere, share the responsibility of producing the great wines.
The vineyards are located in the district of Porrera, in the family owned lands since before 1700, within the Priorat Qualified Designation of Origin, on terraced hillsides, formed by the famous “llicorella” (slate schist land). Very poor land combined with a dry climate ( 550 mm) provides minimal production and therefore maximum quality.
Tasting Notes: The Coranya has been elaborated from 20 years old vines. As a result, we get a very classy wine with a good complexity. Marked notes of red ripe fruits and spices with minerals soft tones. Well integrated oak with silky tannins and a long and persistent finish.
