This wine concentrates the world of colours and aromatic sensations that we find when walking along any path in Priorat. Pissarres is the true mirror of our region. Dark red, depth, the energy and wisdom of the selected 'costers'. The palate is complex. It has ripe fruit, memories of the Mediterranean brushwood and a sharp, cold note which is the characteristic mark of the llicorella slate soils' extreme minerality.

The 2015 Pissarres is a blend of 65% Cariñena with 35% Garnacha from slope vineyards and is named after the slate soils where the grapes grow. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in oak vats for 12 months. It feels serious and balanced, with a commercial mix of ripe fruit and spicy oak aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, with some dusty tannins and less concentration than I expected, which makes it easy to drink. 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2017.
