This Priorat is deep ruby in colour with a youthful purple hue, and layered aromas of black cherries, blueberries, spicy oak and a brooding smokiness. The palate is full bodied and powerful, with ripe tannins, bright acidity and a long, fruit-driven finish.
This seven hectare property has been in the Ferrando family for 150 years. Today viticulture, winemaking and blending are overseen by Jordi Masdeu Català, a young Spaniard who spent time selling wine in London, and Alessandro Marchesan. Their shared passion for old Garnacha and Cariñena vines led them to the famous slate, or 'Llicorella' soils of Priorat. The weathered old vines yield tiny quantities of fruit for both Mas La Mola wines.
