The result is a dark garnet colored wine, with hints of grains and robe. The nose is intense, with notes of graphite, damp earth, black fruit jam, eucalyptus and mineral notes. The taste is powerful, with lots of tannins that provide an outstanding quality
tactile velvety and sweet. We find again the mineral notes intense graphite, with excellent acidity and a very long aftertaste.

GRATAVINUM, the magic of Priorat.
In the wild and rugged landscape of the Priorat performed a dramatic struggle for survival of the vine. A unique atmosphere that captures any lover
nature and wine. In the year 2003, Joan and Josep Cusine, their wives Ma Elena Jimenez and Marta Casas (Peer winemakers Balta) and winemaker Jordi Fernandez, decided to start their adventure in the national Priorat. Thus Gratavinum, contraction of Gratallops (population where found the winery) and Vinum wine in latin, makes a nod to history and to the Romans who introduced the cultivation of the vine in the region centuries ago.
