  • SOILS & VINES: Vineyards are situated at a height of 350/500 meters above sea level on hillsides of pronounced slopes, with the characteristic slate soil called "licorella". The grapes come from vines planted in 1.902 just after the philloxera. Very low yiels: 300 gr per vine.
  • VINTAGE AND CLIMATE: A good vintage, without lack of rain, mild temperatures and the typical dry summer. A warm and rainy September made the harvest complex and required a large selection of grapes, which came with a good tannic structure, concentration of flavors and very refreshing acidity. Hand harvested in boxes of 10 kg. Classification grain by grain double sorting table.
  • AGEING: The elaboration process followed temperature-controlled fermentation with a total maceration period of about 4/5 weeks what allowed a progressive and excellent extraction. The ageing was of 16 months in new French oak.

Tasting Note - Vinologue - Miquel Hudin

Brambly red fruit of raspberry mixed with flecks of dark cherry and blueberry, light touches of anise, slate, and sweet thyme. Delicate on the palate with crisp red fruit notes and boundless energy from brisk acidity and very long finish.
