Food Pairings for Cellers de Scala Dei Grenache Blend Priorat Cartoixa
Scala Dei is in the forefront of a movement to a more balanced and elegant style within DOCa Priorat, the second region awarded Spain’s Demominacion de Origen Calificada.

Priorat intensity is on full display in this wine: raisins, black plums, chocolate, blackberries, and cassis.

This is rather soft by Priorat’s usual chewy standards, but it looses nothing in density and it’s not shy on the alcohols, just like its Priorat brethren.
