This is mountain wine, lean black/red fruit, taut acidity and granite minerality. Needs food, but plays very well with pork, veal and poultry.

Not a subregion of Tarragona. This is a subregion if it's own in Catalunya.

Tomato sauce and dark berries on the nose. Really mineral with a long finish.

Dark rich color, similar to dark lingonberry syrup, medium light body. Notes of straw, blueberry jam and strawberry compote and a tiny bit of granite and faint hint of cooked broccoli, not very strong on nose. Tastes of slight fruit, tiny bit of pale straw, raw mushroom, woodsy pepper throughout. More fruit developing as it breathes. Medium mouthfeel. High acid, giving way to lasting tannin. Overall a nice interesting glass.
