Product Description:

Alacios blends Les Terrasses from garnacha and cariñena grown in different areas of Priorat, presenting an overarching vision of the region’s wines. And that vision in 2015 is rich in herbal notes, tension and freshness, speaking clearly of the new style of Priorat reds. However, behind these bright, crystalline flavors, there are notes of spice and riper fruit flavors that give the wine a delicious depth.
