Description

Priorat, Spain 

Lo Petit de la Casa is a wonderful introduction to the prestigious Priorat region of Spain. Trossos del Priorat is a small, family-run winery located in the village of Gratallops, at the top of the Priorat and home to some of the most prominent producers of Priorat. The Llicorella soils here provide unique climatic conditions in which the Grenache and Carignan vines thrive. The soil structure formed of layers upon layers of slate, with virtually no topsoil, helps with drainage, forcing the roots to grow deep into the soil to source water. Nutrients are poor, therefore the vines dedicate their reproductive cycle to the fruit rather than the vegetation, giving the grapes concentration and power. 

Lo Petit de la Casa is 100% Grenache from organically grown strains under the certificate of the Catalan Council of Ecological Agricultural Production (CCPA). The winemaker Eva Escude works in collaboration with famed winemaker Toni Coca to produce wines with an elegant profile which Eva believes is the most authentic representation of the region. The grapes grow on slate soils, they are de-stemmed in the winery and macerated cold for greater aromatic extraction. Fermentation then occurs at low temperature for 19 days. The aging in three-year-old French oak barrels is about one year. This wine is finally aged in the bottle for 10 months. The goal of Trossos del Priorat is to produce wines expressive of the terroir, with the peculiarities of typical wines of Priorat.

Lo Petit de la Casa Priorat is ruby red in color and soft on the palate with medium-full-body and fine, well integrated tannins, offering rich flavors of plum and blackberries. It is a blend of Garnacha and Carignan. It is nicely balanced with a long, lingering finish.

Enjoy Trossos Lo Petit de la Casa Priorat over the next 8-10 years with roast lamb, steak, grilled vegetables and aged cheeses.
