Characteristics of Scala Dei Prior

Scala Dei Prior is a red wine from Priorat produced by the Scala Dei winery. It is a blend of Grenache (55%), Samso (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Syrah (10%) varieties.

The grapes used for Scala Dei Prior come from different carefully selected small plots. The vines are planted on "costers", a Catalan name by which the outstanding characteristics of Priorat are known.

The soils on which strains grow are slate, called "licorella" in the area. The grapes, before passing through a cold maceration, pass through a stripping. The juice of Scala Dei Prior then undergoes a controlled fermentation.

Scala Dei Prior is finally aged for twelve months in new and one year French oak barrels -80% of them-and American- the remaning 20%.

Before going to market, Scala Dei Prior then rests for at least four months in the bottle. Scala Dei is a historic winery located at the foot of the Sierra del Montsant whose building was already chosen in the twelfth century by Carthusian monks from the Provence to build a monastery. It was these same monks who began to cultivate the vine and the land, it then became the first winery in the Priorat.

D.O. Priorat

Winery Scala Dei

Priorat is craftsmanship and tradition, old and robust vines that are grown and born deep inside the province of Tarragona. They are grown on slopes that are sleety with low fertility and difficult to grow in. In Priorat they produce great red wines of an excellent quality, a maroon colour, robust, dense and rich flavour, intense aromas and sometimes there are reflections present of minerals from the soils.
