2016 Cims de Porrera 'Vi de Villa Porrera - Solanes', Priorat DOCa, Spain
A blend of Carignan and Garnacha from vineyards ranging from 10 to 90 years old, destemmed, fermented in concrete tanks, and raised in a combination of large cement tanks, 2nd and 3rd use French barrels, and 54L glass demijohns for 18 months, with 3 years in bottle before release. The “Vi de Vila” designation was adopted by the DOQ Priorat in 2009, allowing Priorat wineries to label their wines as direct expressions of their villages’ terroirs.
