'Vi de la Vila Gratallops' Garnatxa-Samsó 2019


Primrose, red berry jubes, elderberry and flower, dark tea leaf ... it's pretty, soft, velvety, floral, sooty and lifted all at the same time and very composed and complete, just a beautiful, really beautiful-smelling wine. Very subtly pruney-plums lead with snips of spice, floral lift, sooty depth from the Priorat Llicorella schist soils. it's expressive and expansive, fruit merges into savoury, mouth-filling and reaching, while dancy and deft, almost evanescent in its beauty.
