Degustation notes

An intense purple colour, ripe red berries, sour cherry, nuances of chocolate and spices, soft and round on the attack, aroma rich and medium ampleness and full-bodied, marmalade character, nice concentration, round, moderate tannins continue into the finish. A good choice!

Special notes

The domain that was founded in 1973 was taken over by Codorniu. The vines entitled to the DO appellation extend over an area of 1443 hectares, and are grown on small plots and terraces. The red grapes are Garnacha Tinta, Garnacha Peluda, Carinena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Located in the province of Tarragona, in Catalonia, the Priorat has 1700 hectares of vineyards and 62 wineries (bodegas). It can boast that it's the oldest wine region in Catalonia; the Romans grew vines in this area. In the Middle Ages, the Priorat was one of the primary wine regions in Spain. In 2001, it was awarded the highest level of quality in the kingdom, a DOCa,a privilege that was previously reserved only for the DO Rioja. This wine is stored for at least 6 months in new French Allier oak barrels.

    Kantig - Die Geschmäcker sind zum Glück verschieden, aber für mich ist dieser Wein (2012) zu kantig, zu hart. Ich weiss nicht genau ob zuviel Tanin oder Säure der Grund dafür ist. Auch dekantieren hat nichts verbessert und ich werde den nicht mehr kaufen. Hätte einiges mehr erwartet für den Preis.

    Super Preis/Leistung - Kann den Wein nur wärmstens empfehlen. Besonders gut zu Pasta, Pizza etc. Aber auch also Solo, abends mit der Partnerin geniessen :-)

    ehrlicher Wein - Kann nicht ganz mit den Grossen aus dem Priorat mithalten. (Clos Mogador, Finca Dofi usw.) aber ein sehr gutes Preis-Leitungsverhältnis. Macht trotzdem Spass beim Trinken.
