D.O.Q. Priorat (Catalonia)
Trossos Vells is a red wine from the D.O Montsant and produced by Alfredo Arribas - Portal del Priorat. This wine is made using only the Cariñena grape variety.
Trossos Vells originates from very old wines, more than 60 years of age, distributed over 9 plots of land. These are located in Masroig and Marçà, in the center of Montsant.
The climate is very dry and the soils are mainly clay and sand, furthermore, very poor in organic material.
The harvest is performed by the end of September and the beginning of October all by hand and using small containers so that the grapes don't prematurely start fermenting.
Trossos Vells, after the winemaking processes, the wine rests for 12 months in 225 and 300 litre French oak barrels.
This vintage of Trossos Vells has been widely recognised by critics in recent years, after having obtained scores by both Parker and Peñin.
