ARTIGOTS is a vineyard planted on two terraces, in goblet style, the smallest vineyard of Scala Dei, located on the slope of the Montsant, The soil is cobblestones, heavy and deep. Orientation is completely north facing. It is one of the vineyards that the monks had planted with Grenache centuries ago.
With this wine we wanted to recover a heritage that existed in Scala Dei centuries ago and that lead us to the first bottled wines of Cellars de Scala Dei.
Vinified with 100% of the stem, this wine represents the most ancestral vision of this varietal.
Harvested during the second week of October, in small boxes, vinified with treaded grapes (not whole). Fermented in a small cement tank, imitating the temperature peaks typical of the fermentations of the last century, without added yeast and pressed in the tank itself. Aged for 24 months in a 500l barrel.
We have produced Artigots only on three occasions, 2010, 2013 and 2017.
