Product Description

Details

The grapes of the Scala Dei Cartoixa stem from vineyards aged about 60 years, planted in terraces and slopes (known as “costers” ) of the llicorella of Priorat.

Orography (the study of physical geography of mountains), the management of plants and, above all, to ensure that the integrity of the grape is maintained, the harvest is collected manually.  The vineyards are situated at an altitude of between 500 and 800 metres.

Every year, depending on the characteristics of the vintage year and given the possibility of being able to choose between an infinite number of small vineyards spread over an area of different altitudes and with every conceivable orientation, the choice is made of those that have provided the best grapes.  These are then fermented separately in small stainless steel vats and concrete at a controlled temperature, taking great care over the extraction and expressing of the fruit at each stage during its preparation.  In this way the quality of the grape at the moment of its being picked can be maximised.

 After the pressing, the wine is transferred to barrels.The ageing process, which characterises this wine, takes 18 months inside carefully selected best French oak barrels.We match the barrel with the characteristics of the wine.  New oak for the most muscular, the first or second year for the more subtle garnachas.

Alcoholic content 15% proof.

 Tasting notes: Deep cherry red, dense, vivid and profound with tinges of violets.

It has an intense and lingering nose of ripe black fruit, plums, and a floral touch of violets mixed with a discernable shade of minerals, contributed by the “llicorella” soil which gives it its inimitable Priorat signature.The gentle ageing process brings a wood-spiced lick to the wine.

 To the palate it is a robust, unctuous and smooth wine with intense mature tannins, full-bodied and enduring with the passing of time.

 Scala Dei Cartoixa can be drunk at at any time but will continue to mature well and improve for at least the next 7 to 12 years if stored in favourable conditions.

 Awarded Gold Medal at the “Concours Mondial de Vins Bruxelles 2011”.

Pairs well with starters or robust main courses such as stews and roasts.  Especially suitable for game and barbecues.  Delicious with Ibérico ham, other good quality cold meats as well as cured cheeses.

Recommended serving temperature 15º-17ºC.
