Cellers Scala Dei Priorat Negre 2010
This remarkable winery dates back to the twelfth century and is surrounded by some of the most distinctive winemaking geography in Spain. Scala Dei (Latin for “Ladder of God”) produces wines of exceptional flavor and depth that are among the most critically acclaimed from Priorat, one of Spain’s smallest and most recognized appellations. The dramatic terroir of the region surrounding the winery is breathtakingly steep and covered in black slate. The extremely low grape yields, in some cases only two pounds of fruit per vine, produce highly concentrated grapes.
