DO Ca. Priorato, Spain

This wine combines three concepts:  freshness, fruit, and simplicity.  It is elaborated mainly with Garnacha, the main variety of Scala Dei vineyards.  It has the pure expression of the fruit and the terroir.  The red clay soils and the altitude of the vineyards located on the slopes of the Serra del Montsant bring freshness and the licorella, a genuine imprint that is shown in this wine in the form of personality, minerality, and acidity.  It is a good example of what Garnatxa and Priorat can offer.

Aroma: The intense aromas of ripe black fruits, plum plus a touch of violet intermingle with distinct mineral notes from the licorella slate terroir which give it its distinct Priorat typicity.  It's aging in barrels gives it spicy aromas such as vanilla, pepper, and toasty notes.
