Appearance

The red wine Scala Dei Cartoixa is medium purple with a ruby rim. 

Nose

Gently mineral, this blend of Grenache and Carignan conveys aromas of bilberries and raspberries, with a pinch of blue flowers and some smokey and spicy remembrances.

Palate

Complex and medium to full-bodied, this wine from bodega Scala Dei has a lush texture, round tannins and a lively acidity. Very long, with deep earthy and mineral remembrances, a hint of spices and a floral and berryish aftertaste.

A textbook Priorat, Scala Dei Cartoixa 2016 nicely combines depth and drinkability.
