Tasting Note

The intensity of Priorat can be taken for granted but its powerful stew of fruits fresh, dried and concentrated always comes as something of an exuberant shock. Expect figs, blueberries, cassis, black raspberries and lots more. Drink now or over the next five or more years.

Wine Description

The wine is dark red with violet hints with intense mineral aromas, the presence of candied dark fruits, notes of cocoa and brown sugar and roasted, spicy notes from the barrel aging.

About the Winery

The Torres surname has been associated with wine for more than three centuries, when the family planted the first vines in the Penedès. Since its founding in 1870, Torres has managed to combine tradition and innovation with the aim of leading the premium quality wine and brandy sector, always producing with the utmost respect for the environment. This family tradition has been scrupulously respected down through the centuries, and the company has been passed down from father to son.
