When James Suckling calls a wine, “Perhaps one of the greatest carinena in the world,” the world better take notice. Terroir Al Limit is defining the Priorats of today with an intensity of flavor wrapped in velvet elegance over raw power. This next-level beauty brings blackberry, slate, graphite and tar to both nose and body with refined tannins and a focused, intense finish. Not to be missed.

Wine Advocate

I often find more similarities between Les Tosses and Dits del Terra than with the Arbossar. However, this time I found common characteristics between the 2015 Les Tosses and the Arbossar from the same year. Both show graphite and licorice, which speaks to the freshness achieved by this southeast-facing slope planted with centenary vines. It's musky, spiced and floral, with notes of blue fruit and violets, a touch of balsam, ash and incense along with really refined tannins with intense, penetrating and long-lasting flavors. It's clean, pure and delicate but also powerful and concentrated. 1,600 bottles were filled in May 2017.
