Review

Made from the grapes of old vines aged over 60 years old. Cultivated on the slate-covered hillsides and terraces of the mountains of Molar (Tarragona), and lying at altitudes of between 300 and 400 metres.

Aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, La Garnatxa Fosca del Priorat reminds us with its name (fosca means dark) of the slate soils of the Priorat which define the austere and flavoursome character of this wine. Sixty-year-old vines grow on the typical soils of this area (where slate dominates) at a height of 310 metres. This is a mineral Grenache, complex and elegant which has aged for 10 months in French oak barrels to gain its austere and flavoursome character.

Amazing value for money!

A very well made wine with dark fruit, lovely Garnacha perfume, fresh fruity taste with dark berrys, some lovely violet and blackberry notes . Still young but already very drinkable.

Da lo que ofrece. Muy buena relación calidad-precio.

Se trata de un buen vino para iniciarse en el Priorat, tanto por su excelente relación calidad-precio como porque están presentes las principales notas de la Denominación: mineral, fresco, con una importante acidez y el sabor a frutos rojos que proporciona la garnacha. Lo maridaría con platos contundentes (carnes rojas, quesos viejos, ibéricos de bellota), pero es versátil.
