Characteristics of Scala Dei Negre

Scala Dei Negre 2018 is a young red wine made with the Cabernet Sauvignon, Garnacha Tinta and Syrah red varieties by the Scala Dei winery in the D.O.Q. Priorat.

Dating right back to the Carthusian monks and their winemaking tradition, Cellers Scala Dei was the first winery to sell bottled Priorat wine, long before this area started to become fashionable in the eighties. Now part of the Codorniu Group, the winery is one of the best in the denomination and is directed by winemaker Rofes.

Scala Dei Negre is made from vines aged between 15 and 25 years old planted in the typical slate soils that characterise the Priorat region. These strains are planted on steep slopes where work has to be carried out manually. They use conventional agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.

In the winery, Scala Dei Negre is made in small open 7,000 kg tanks, with evenly ripened grapes. Alcoholic fermentation takes place with native yeasts at a controlled temperature followed by maceration with the skins for 12 to 16 days. Finally, the wine ages for 6-8 months in stainless steel tanks until being bottled.

Scala Dei Negre is a young, tasty example of wine from a denomination that stands out for the qualities the licorella soil gives it. An explosion of fruit in every way.

Tasting notes Scala Dei Negre

Scala Dei Negre 2018 is a fruity red wine with pleasant aromas of ripe red fruits with spicy notes of coffee and cinnamon. On the palate it is round, full and fresh with the typical minerality of the Priorat soils.
The Priorat region was marked by heavy drought and heat. Following an autumn and winter with normal temperatures and rainfall, spring began with an abnormal drought and high temperatures. Flowering was successful, occurring before the expected date, but the rains didn’t come. During the summer the high temperatures continued, and the lack of rainfall resulted in the earliest harvest in history. In general, the wines of this vintage are noted for their concentration, being less pronounced in wines produced with local varieties such as Grenache or Cariñena. Perfect for enjoying young, and with a medium aging capacity.
We present the new 2016 vintage, characterised by the wettest winterin the last five years. Not only did it rain in winter, but there was also wet weather up until summer arrived, especially inMarch and April. In summer everything changed, and it was one of the driest inhistory, with only 28 litres being recorded between July and October.If we compare the temperatures in 2012 and 2016, the 2016 crophad to endure a much colder winter than in 2012, which turned outto be positive, since the frost cleared the fields ofvine parasites. During the spring, lower temperaturesthan in 2012 were also recorded.Due to all these climatic conditions there was a delay insprouting, which began on March 28th, and which led to a delayin flowering of between three and four weeks.Once the summer arrived, the Priorat got all the luck, sincethe rains disappeared, while in the rest of Europethey were incessant. It was something that nobody expected considering thewinter we’d had. Taking into account the delay insprouting, the harvest started around mid-October on some ofthe estates.Obtaining fresh wines with an extraordinary acidity is dueto this long duration of the grape in the strain that has so characterisedthis vintage.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Q. 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.
