The Massipa, Vi de Vila, a single vineyard, elegant white wine with a very limited production is made by Ricard Rofes at the historic winery in the Priorat, Cellers Scala Dei. A blend of Mostly Garnacha (80%) with a smaller percentage of Chenin (20%) from a single vineyard, The Massipa, a small plot of just 0.60 ha. planted in 1983 in clay soils with good content of chalk, east-facing and at 680 meters in altitude.
The two varieties are pressed together, fermented in a single 1000 liter oak fudre at a controlled temperature of 16º -18ºC using autochthonous yeasts. Aged over a year in the same fudre with its fine lees.
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.
Tasting notes: Elegance and class as its best, aromas redolent of white fruit, Mediterranean herbs and floral notes. On the palate stands for its freshness and intensity, creamy texture with a lovely herbaceous touch, aniseed and mineral notes contribute to its delicious long finish.
Notes: While delicious right now it will evolve beautifully over the next 4 – 5 years
