Crafted by the Mas Alta winery, Els Pics is a Spanish red wine from Priorat which shows the most accessible side of this prestigious Catalan wine region.
Handpicked and carefully selected, the grapes were macerated and fermented in concrete tanks. Then this red wine from Priorat was aged for 12 months, the first 6 in the tanks, and the other 6 in French oak barrels 1, 2, 3 & 4 years of age.
Drink Els Pics 2017 from Priorat through 2024.
Decant 30 minutes before drinking.
The red wine Els Pics has a clean, bright, dark cherry colour with a violet rim.
Produced by the Mas Alta winery, this Crianza red wine is very idiomatic. Aromas of red fruit, spices, toast and a dash of violets. On the background, a pulsating mineral remembrance.
Remarkable balance between the fruit and the wooden notes. Produced in the town of La Vilella Alta, this wine is gulpable and yummy, with a well-crafted acidity and crunchy tannins. Bold and substantial, the mineral nuances are extremely seductive. Long, persistent finish.
