Carinyena with plenty of sweet spice and lots of room; rustic at first, this loves air and opens beautifully. Blackberry and orange with an incredible metal mineral linger, as if you’ve just brushed your teeth with a chunk of rock. There’s the malted bran of brown llicorella and sweet, truffly hay pollen. Earthy with blue florals and wood-spice, formed on a deep river of vegetal, spiced Carinyena tannin. The magic of Priorat in full view here: profoundly earthen, and with some power, but so easy, so intriguing, so much a wine to drink by the mouthful, as with the best of Barbaresco. Lovely, wild, spicy.
