Priorat is such an outstanding wine region and seduces more and more wine lovers all around the world. The area's characteristic llicorella (slate) soil makes that the vines have to work hard to get nutrients. Intensity, depth and complexity are the result. 'Inici' is a beautiful translation of a modern Priorat wine. Full, rich and despite the high alcohol (15%) incredibly soft and smooth. One that keeps you longing for more. Pair with truffles, mushrooms, duck breast or a big platter of artisan Catalan cheeses.
Rich in red fruit aromas (raspberries, red currants), touches of oak, complemented with spicy notes as aniseed.
Clean and fruity, medium velvetty tannins and a long lingering finish.

Priorat | Spain
Priorat, or Priorato, is one of the stand-out Spanish wine regions with an extraordinary leap in wine quality, reputation and price over the 1990s. This small wine appellation, with 1,700 hectares of vines and just over 60 bodegas, lies to the west of the province of Tarragona and Catalunya.
It includes the municipalities of Gratallops and Falset, where vines grow on steep terraces at varying altitudes of 100 to 700 metres. The climate is continental, and the region blessed with an exceptional schistous terroir (mostly llicorella with layers of slate and quartz). This schist is part of the same stratum found in the finest vineyards of the Douro, Toro and Ribera del Duero. It provides ideal conditions for growing vines and also contributes to the much-lauded mineral-rich character of Priorato’s wines.
