Supple and fresh, this red offers cherry, wild berry, herb, mineral and smoky flavors, with light, firm tannins and lively acidity. Energetic and graceful.
Clos Figueras Font de la Figuera
Although this small but very impressive property is barely 16 years old, Clos Figueras has already taken its place as one of the leaders in this exciting and constantly evolving appellation. Talented owner, entrepreneur and wine distributor Christopher Cannan is one of a number of individuals that have transformed this formerly unremarkable D.O from a rustic backwater into an important wine region. His energy, commitment and drive is remarkable, as he constantly strives to push the boundaries of what can be achieved in this once forgotten corner of Catalonia. For despite the fact that vineyards have been planted in this province of the Tarragona region since Roman times, it was only since a group of enthusiasts ‘discovered’ the area’s virtues in the 1980s that Priorat has risen to the forefront of Spain’s best wine regions.
