A great match for wild game and red meat. Pairs beautifully with lamb
and roasts. Serve at 16–18°C.
LEGACY
Salmos is born in a beautiful remote land. The vineyards, planted on
slopes of shale (“licorella” stone), undergo extreme changes in
temperature between day and night and these natural vicissitudes add to
the wine’s appeal. Salmos is a tribute to the Carthusian monks who
planted the first grapevines in the Priorat. The wine holds the mysterious
legacy of ancient times and wise men.
