Aearte this Priorat red wine at least 1 hour before drinking.
Pair this Crianza red wine with game dishes and casseroles.
The red wine Scala Dei Cartoixa is medium purple with a ruby rim.
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.
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.
