Characteristics of Somni

Somni is a red wine from the Priorat developed by Portal del Priorat, owned by the winery Alfredo Arribas. This wine comes from the farm known Clos del Portal, located between the town of Tarragona and Lleida Lloar Bellmunt.

Somni is a blend of the varieties grown on the farm: Carignan and Syrah. The vineyards are planted on soils of licorella (slate soils in the Priorat) and were grown using organic viticulture.

The development of Somni begins with a manual harvest in boxes of 16kg, during the first fortnight of October. After fermentation, Somni is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. To enjoy all the virtues of this great wine from Priorat, we recommend decanting an hour before consuming.

Tasting notes Somni

Somni 2015 is a mature, powerful and meaty red wine. A good vintage for this Priorat, which reveals all its intensity in a very elegant way. On the nose the elegant aromas of ripe red fruit stand out, with marked mineral notes over a highly distinguished toasted base note. On the palate it is voluminous and direct, with a very lingering finish.
A year with a very good balance. This vintage was characterised by the absence of water stress for the plants. Winter and spring were favourable in terms of rainfall and temperatures were slightly higher than usual. At the time of budding, there was no rain, so the vines developed in a suitable manner. The flowering took place in a clean way and the Grenache vines settled in an excellent way. Summer was characterised by cool and dry days, but also humid, which led to good photosynthesis and growth of the plants. During the end of the summer, before the harvest, there was still some humidity, which preserved the freshness of the soil and, consequently, achieving a gradual ripening of the grapes, perfect to retain the aromas and the good acidity. The negative factor was the rain during the harvest days. In short, the vintage has been somewhat atypical for Priorat, with wines that are less voluminous than in a normal year in the area, but with a good acidity that is reflected in the wines and that will keep them optimal for many years.
Sight Cherry colour, violet trim, medium-high clean, shiny coat with a powerful tear. Nose Intense, with a presence of black fruit compote. Very complex, hints of spice, mocha and liquorice. Mineral and toasted background. Taste The entry is soft and light. It is complex, dense and full bodied. Presence of candied plums and blackberries. Persistent.
Sight Intense cherry red colour with violet reflections. Clean and bright. Abundant tear. Nose High intensity nose in which black fruit stands out once again in this vintage. Fleshy, ripe, reminiscences of plums, blackberries, cassis together with intense spices notes, floral and balsamic reminiscences, notes of aromatic herbs, fine toasted hints, aromas of the terroir and mineral nuances. A red wine with a very complex and very pleasant nose. Taste In the mouth, it is complex, powerful, with a mid-palate marked by a great load of fruit. Great acidity which freshens it and gives it a powerful tannic sensation which becomes softer over time. Very long and persistent finish with fruity, smoked and mineral hints at retro-olfaction.
Sight The tasting repport of this wine is being translated. Meanwhile, you can check the Spanish version.
Sight Very dark garnet, almost opaque with purple and blue tones. Very high robe. Dense legs. Nose Intense and subtle aromas. The black fruits are accompanied with fine floral aromas (violets), all wrapped in smoky and spicy aromas, provided by the oak aging. Taste Fresh and determined attack. This wine fills the mouth with sensations. Pronounced but at the same time delicate tannins. Silky and velvety mid palate. Long and persistent. A rounded wine that invites to repeat.
