Product Description:

La Garnatxa Fosca del Priorat (fosca means dark) is a wine made in a 60-year-old vineyard with typical soils of the area, predominantly slate. Vineyards: Old vineyards, over 60 years old. Located between 300 and 400 metres above sea level on the sloped hillsides and slate soiled terraces of the mountains of Molar (Tarragona). Harvest: Harvested manually during the last days of September and the first days of October. Winemaking and aging: Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks under a controlled temperature below 28º’bcC. Maceration is carried out for two weeks. Aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. Tasting notes: A burgundy wine with notes of youth and aging. Interesting bouquet where the mineral qualities provided by the dark slate soils perfectly combine with the typical red fruit nuances of the Garnacha. On the palate, it is a rich and tasty wine with a well-balanced elegance and finesse, complexity and length.
