This Wine is a homage to the monks of the courageous carthusian order, who arrived in ?Priorat?, in 1095, where they cultivated vines. In 1835 a violent crowd destroyed the work of a lifetime and sacked the monastery, events which later culminated in the auctioning of church lands known as the ?Desamortizacion de Mendizabal?. In 1996 the Torres Family began work on the planting of vineyards on the slopes strewn with the hard, black slate-like ?Licorella? stone. Made by the Torres family and coming exclusively from our vineyards located in the municipalities of Porrera and Lloar, Salmos is a Priorat wine that manages to achieve an unparalleled balance between power and elegance.
?highly fragrant red and dark berry compote aromas are complemented by an intense floral element and hints of Asian spices. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated, spice-tinged black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and juicy acidity that provides spine and lift. The endless finish is sharpened by an intense mineral note, supple tannins and lingering spiciness. This brilliant wine was aged in a large foudre for two years
