Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Scala Dei Massipa is a white wine from D.O.Q. Priorat produced by Celler Scala Dei, in the municipality of La Morera del Montsant (Tarragona).

Celler Scala Dei is a historic wine of Priorat. In 1878, the first bottles of Priorat wine left their facilities to go to the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Almost a century later, in 1973, Scala Dei went from bulk wine commercialisation to the production of bottled wines.

Celler Scala Dei works with 90 hectares of their own vineyards, distributed in 40 different locations. All these plots are located between 400 and 800 metres of altitude, on different kinds of soils. Slate, clay and calcareous soils, with all the possible orientations thanks to the unique terrain of the region.

 

Scala Dei Massipa is a wine made from White Grenache and Chenin from a single vineyard, La Massipa. It is located next to the Masdeu vineyard, facing East, at 650 metres of altitude, and on red clay soils with incrustations of gypsum. It is 45 years old, and it is the only vineyard with white grapes owned by Celler Scala Dei.

Both varieties are harvested at the same time and they are vinified in the same way. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are pressed, settled, and transferred to foudres. Here they will go through the fermentation with native yeasts at a controlled temperature of 16-18ºC. They age for 12 months in the same foudres whey they ferment, with a weekly batonnage.

With this wine they intend to show the freshest side of the White Grenache in Priorat.

Scala Dei is the oldest winery of Priorat. It was established by the Carthusian monks in 1163, and until this day it still preserves the same spirit for handcrafted work. The wines of Scala Dei capture the essence of the rough landscape, the intense climate and the old vines. The result is wines with an authentic expression of the “terroir”. The entrance of the group Codorníu Raventós in the company in the middle of 2000, has allowed them to expand and modernize the facilities, and turn the business objective towards the consolidation of red wines. This has led specialized press and competitions to praise them and acknowledge them in recent years.
Pictures and situation 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.
