Description

Grapes from the region's historical varietals (Garnacha and Cariñena) and from its most vintage vineyards (about 60 years old) planted on terraces, the Priorat's typical “costers” with their licorella slate terroirs. Due to the steep landscape, the trellising of the vines and above all the desire to obtain only the choicest grapes, harvesting is carried out solely by hand. Aged for 24 months in 1400-litre casks, 500-litre barrels and 225-litre barrels. Each vineyard for Scala Dei Cartoixa Grenache grapes were aged separately with different treatment during aging to ensure the best measure that fully expresses its terroir.

Tasting Notes

  • Nose Nose
    The intense aromas of ripe black fruits, plum plus a touch of violet intermingle with distinct mineral notes from the licorella slate terroir. Its aging in barrels gives it spicy aromas such as vanilla, pepper and toasty notes.
  • Palate
    On the palate it is robust, buttery, supple with intense mature tannins, with full rounded body and a long lingering finish.
  • Appearance Appearance
    A deep to very deep, dense morello cherry red with violet hues.

Sommelier Review

“The red blend Cartoixa is mostly Grenache with 25% Cariñena from 12 different vineyards (with an aim to select the best from each vineyard) and combines the traditional use of full clusters in concrete along with more modern vinification—destemmed grapes in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts.”
