Bottle Description

One of Catalonia's emerging superstars, Alfredo Arribas was a nationally renowned architect before shifting his focus to farming and winemaking fifteen years ago, and is known for making some of the most elegant wines in Priorat and Montsant - Wines that are massive in terms of flavor and complexity, but diminutive in terms of alcohol levels and extraction…The opposite of the over ripe, over wooded Priorats of old. Negre de Negres, translated “Black of Blacks,” takes its name from the cepage of multiple black grape varietals used in the wine, the sum of which is greater than its parts. Deeply fruited Grenache makes up the core here, and the Syrah and Carignan used come from early harvest fruit in the Somni vineyard. Farming is certified organic and winemaking follows biodynamic practices. Fruity and approachable, this has lovely purity in its varietal expression of Garnacha (60 percent of the blend) with red fruit and floral notes. The pungent, austere acidity of Carignan (30 percent) supports those generous flavours. This is a voluptuous, ample red, with a firm backbone.
