A younger version of Font de la Figuera with plenty of forward, bright red fruit flavors, with balance and a classic mineral Priorat finish. This wine is ready to drink, but will continue to improve for at least 2 to 3 years. Overall ageing potential 8 to 10 years. Ideal with classic Mediterranean cuisine, white meats, vegetables and rice dishes.

A big blast of blackberries and cherries. Full body, but plenty of freshness underlined by some supple tannins and a hint of something sappy on the clean finish - 90 pts - James Suckling
