Other Info:
From an historic Priorat family which can trace its lineage back to before 1700, the Bodega Sangenís i Vaqué was founded in 1978 by Pere Sangenís and Conxita Vaqué in the wine region of Priorat.

The vineyards are located in Porrera, famous for its llicorella (schist and slate) terraces and vines, all of which are venerable, and divided between Garnacha and Cariñena.

Minimal intervention in the winery is the philosophy here and the wines are aged in a combination of French (85%) and American (15%) oak for 12 months. They are then bottled unfined and unfiltered and can, as a result, be seen as amongst the purest and most traditional, in all its best senses, from this magical denominación.

This wine shows a gorgeous combination of rustic earthiness and refined, spiced fruit. Think plums and dark berries with mulling spices. Still relatively tannic for a wine of its age, and while it shows some tertiary characteristics, remains fresh and youthful.
