Montsant

One of Spain's newest denomination was created in 2001 from the former Falset zone of Tarragona, which consists of the valley between the Serra de Montsant and Serra de Montalt ranges. In recent years, the area's progressive cooperatives have produced a number of exciting red wines, which take aim at the sought after wines of neighboring Priorat. As in Priorat, the vines are mainly Garnacha and Cariñena with some more recent plantings of international red grapes. The dry climate promotes low yields resulting in wines with intensity. The soil is mostly limestone over granite with only occasional patches of Priorat's slate. Montsant already produces some of Spain's best red wine values and its potential for quality is only starting to be explored.
