Bottle size and vintage
Alfredo Arribas offers us a very varied selection of wines, in both the Priorat and Montsant. They're all original and extremely well-made, thanks to the collaboration of Joan Asens as the team's technical director. There's a wide choice of Priorat wines, but there's one that sets itself apart, Somni, above all because of its coupage, a high percentage of Cariñena (60%) and a quite abnormal 40% of Syrah.
In style it's the most different too: the most robust and voluminous, and distinctly opaque in the glass, clearly maintaining a very well-defined and elegant profile, like all the wines in the Arribas family. Aged in new French oak barrels for a little over a year, Somni is a powerful wine with a real wealth of nuances. Right now it needs some time, like all good Priorats and this particular one is no exception, time to refine its considerable robustness.
After a quiet repose in the bottle, you'll discover that it's a Priorat of great finesse, with a seductive perfume of violets and the flowers of aromatic plants growing around the vineyards, such as rosemary, and also peppery notes which highlight its freshness. It's more of a black fruit wine than a red fruit one, having all the essence and strength of the Priorat terroir, mineral, with a graphite undertone and some earthy notes that confer a rustic character, always tempered by the overall elegance.

With Portal del Priorat, Alfredo offers us some elegant single-vineyard wines, from the Clos del Portal estate, covering an area of just over 40 ha, of which 15 ha comprise vineyards that are very low-yielding (approximatel...
