The Trossos Tros Negre is pure Garnacha from the plot called Mas de la Notaria in the village of El Masroig located on a terroir of sand and lime and is biodynamically cultivated. The vineyard was harvested twice at different ripeness and therefore two separate batches were fermented. The wine has aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, but the oak is unobtrusive and very balanced, as befits a top wine. In the nose a mix of wild flowers, orange, red berries and some rusticity of earth. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied with very refined tannins and a very good balance. It is best to summarize the wine as subtle and elegant and advice is to give the wine a little more time. The wine was made by Alfredo Arribas of Portal del Montsant who has a number of projects bearing his name. They are all small-scale projects with a focus on very old vines. Only 1324 bottles of this Tros Negre have been bottled.

Vineyard for 2016 Alfredo Arribas Tros Negre Notaria

Alfredo Arribas (an established and well-known architect from Barcelona) bought Mas del Portal in 2001. The brilliant project took a major step forward when Ricard Rofes joined the program. Ricard used to be the winemaker for nine years at the El Masroig cooperative, making Les Sortes a brand of international recognition. Ricard knows the areas of Priorat and Montsant very well, especially the small landowners, who have vineyards some of which are 150 years old. Ricard's contribution is an enrichment, he has an enormous knowledge of the area and makes the finest possible Carinena (Carignan). The vineyards are rough with steep slopes, damaged canes are replaced by young canes and only self-fertilization is done without pesticides or other chemicals. They work completely organically. Arribas is currently needed by the top 100 producers in Spain!
