90 points Vinous
"Juicy, focused and lithe on the palate, offering appealingly sweet boysenberry and cherry flavors that deepen steadily through the back half. Shows strong intensity and sharp definition on a long, floral-tinged finish thats given shape by silky, even tannins."
Vinous Reverie Notes
For generations, the Altes's have cultivated vines in the vicinity of the village of Batea in Terra Alta. Their most widely planted red variety is the indigenous Garnatxa Negra which grows well in the sandy and clay limestone soils of the region. By mixing old and young vine fruit (40–100 years old), and fermenting in concrete, Nuria is able to create an affordable, lively, and elegant version of Garnatxa showcasing the delicate Pinot-side of the variety.
