Pissares Priorat

VARIETIES

60% Garnacha Tinta and 40% Samsó (Carignan or Mazuelo)

PRODUCTION

The wine is made in stainless steel tanks of 3,000 and 5,000 litres, and a small part in cement vats. The varieties are vinifed separa- tely to get the maximum expression of each grape. The aging is carried out for 12 months in French oak barrels of 225 and 500 litres. Part of the barrels are new, some are two years old. The malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously within the barrels.

TASTING

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 selec- ted ‘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.

FOOD PAIRING

Grilled meats –lamb, Iberian pork, beef– stand as the ideal harmony of this wine. But there are other less obvious choices. For example, it goes very well with creamy and slightly fat dishes such as mushoom cannello- ni, tuna-based stews and classic risottos.
