Samsó, the new queen of the Priorat Region!

Joan Nebot has written about our 2 Pájaros wine.
In Capçanes 10 years ago we decided to make a single varietal wine with samsó, using the vinification pattern of  our  emblematic wine Cabrida.
The oldest cariñenas vines were sought, they were vinified in oak barrells, separating the cariñenas from different soils.
The result has been…… one coupage from these soils, in which clay gives freshness, limestone gives elegance and llicorella gives power.
