Galena is a wine of intense cherry colour with remarkable mineral aromas which express the Priorat “terroir”. Singular complexity of aromas and well-structured nuances, where mature red fruits stand out with delicate touch of spices and orange peel. Powerful initial attack, persistent and intense but softens after a while with very pronounced minerality.
Galena vintage 2013, received 92 points from Wine Spectator.
