Finca Tobella, Negre, Priorat, 2018

In Stock Now!

Very deeply coloured, inky; overtly flavoured by the barrels, with
expensive, clean, cedary accents, over plush black-fruit; very
concentrated, but with excellent freshness and liquorice hints. Very
polished and smart wine; but also currently very youthful, so benefiting
from decanting. Now-2023

Priorat in Catalonia, with vineyards lying on slate and mica soils (known locally as licorella) on steep hillsides, is one of the great Spanish terroirs. It sprang to prominence in the 1990s when a number of growers began blending the traditional grape varieties of the region, Grenache and Carignan (known as Samsó locally), with recently introduced Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon; and also using more and newer French oak barrels for ageing. Finca Tobella was founded in 2003 with the purchase of four hectares near Gratallops by Californian John Lipscomb and Núria Tobella, and has since grown to over 20 hectares. Negre is based on the estate’s younger vines of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Carignan, with 40% aged in new French barrels.
