Priorat Pissarres 2017 Costers del Priorat

Variety: Garnacha Tinta 60% e Samsò (Carignan) 40%

Ruby red color

The nose is fascinating from the beginning, with aromas of Mediterranean scrub, undergrowth and fresh fruit. Notes of graphite, iodized sensations, pepper, and leather further reward it. The range is well distributed, as is cleanliness and class.

On the palate the structure of hardness is highlighted, with minerality to excel. The whole is precise in its interlocking of the individual parts, for a very well painted picture. Overall it is creamy and deep, with aromas of wild berries, thyme, rosemary and flowers.

Excellent example of Catalan wine with an excellent quality / price ratio. Perfect for getting to know the potential of Spanish wine and the Costers del Priorat wines.

Interpretation of typical Sardinian blends, Cannonau and Carignano on the other side of the Mediterranean.
