  • Introduction

    • Secret del Priorat reflects the typicity and diversity of this incredible region, a land of small miracles that happen every day, like the flowers on a lone almond tree in the middle of the vineyard. The magical landscape of Priorat brings us this pleasant, delicate wine in a tribute to the local landscape, with its steep slopes and llicorella slate soils, and its valiant winegrowing, where nature prevails above all else.

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Appellation: DOQ Priorat
    • Composition: Garnacha, Cariñena, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah
    • Soil: Shallow soils developed over Carboniferous slate (Paleozoic) that drain swiftly and have a low water holding capacity. Arranged along steep slopes, these soils are responsible for the typicity of Priorat wines.

  • Tasting Notes

    • The wine has a dark cherry red color that looks beautiful. Its scent is intense and exciting, with fruity notes that remind you of wild blackberries and ripe undertones such as dates and dried figs. It tastes light and silky on the palate, with very fine tannins that give it a supple backbone.



  • Secret del Priorat, DOQ Priorat — 2020 – Wine Enthusiast – 93 Points

    “The color of cherry pie filling, this wine has a nose of blackberry preserves, dried cranberry and baking spices. Velvety tannins provide a backdrop for black cherry, Chambord, ground black pepper, clove and butterscotch flavors. Soft notes of rose petal and smoke linger on the palate.”

  • Secret del Priorat, DOQ Priorat — 2020 – James Suckling – 92 Points

    "Plenty of red cherries, strawberries and a hint of spice and flowers. Medium-bodied and juicy on the palate with dusty tannins and a fruit-expressive finish. Bright and sappy."

  • Secret del Priorat, DOQ Priorat — 2020 – Wine Spectator – 90 Points

    "This creamy red is medium-bodied and balanced, with a toasty hint of biscuit enriching flavors of baked cherry, dried fig and orange peel. Reveals hints of fine spices and herbs that linger on the lightly chewy, lingering finish."
