Made only in select vintages, this inimitable wine is produced solely from extremely old-vine Carineña. The tiny, head-pruned vines are grown on the steep rocky hills, or cims, of the Porrera region in Priorat and produce such a low yield that it takes three vines to make one bottle of wine. Concentrated and luscious, this wine has rich aromas of fennel, incense, black minerals and roasted coffee. On the palate the wine exhibits complex layers of ripe forest fruit, sweet spice, dark chocolate and toasted almonds with mature, elegant tannins. Meant to drink now or age up to 50 years, the estate suggests opening this wine one hour prior to consuming and serving it at a temperature of 55-60ºC.
"The purple-colored 2005 Classic is only produced in the better vintages. It is made up of 90% old-vine Carinena and 10% Garnacha aged for 18 months in new French oak. Aromas of pain grille, pencil lead, truffle, fennel, blueberry, and blackberry are high-class. This is followed by a full-bodied, plush, layered wine with spice notes, chocolate, and toasted almonds putting in an appearance. Nicely focused, concentrated, and balanced, it will evolve effortlessly for another 4-6 years and offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2030."
