Organic vines aging from 20-35 years on limestone soils at 400-600 meters - the naturally low pH of the pinyolenc soil keep the wine fresh.
Silky, sweet, and fresh - juicy raspberry and cherry flavors that are vibrant and intense with some floral notes and peppery spice. The jamjar fruit elements are lifted with racy acidity and held together with harmonious tannins. Great complexity with impressive evolution and length from start to finish.
Pair it with pork chops Normandy, Kobe beef, or parmesan-crusted asparagus tips.
Dani Sánchez (from Azul y Garanza in Navarra) founded DIT Celler - the first certified organic wines of Montsant - with Toni Coca and recently took over the project solo. The vineyards, Mas d’En Fornós and Guiamets, surround the mountains of the natural park Llaberia in Priorat, The local name for the soil type is “pinyolencs,” which contain small stones (they resemble olive pits – the meaning of pinyolenc) and are rich in calcium, giving acidity and freshness to the wines. The weather can get quite warm in summer time, but every summer afternoon a wind coming from the Mediterranean called “Marinada” cools down the temperature.
