Varieties: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Soil: Slate soil with river stones, poor in organic matter.

Climate: Mild winters and hot summers. With the influence of the Tramuntana all year round, a dry wind that comes from the north passing through the Albera mountains.

 

Tasting note

View: Dense and deep purple red color.

Aroma: Complex, powerful and pure aromas, with hints of ripe fruit.

Mouth: The structure of the tannins is expressed with subtlety. This richness combined with an elegant freshness promises a great aging time for this magnificent wine.
