A sturdy boy from Priorat. Raised on rough terrain and therefore nice and intense and complex. An exceptional blend of the Carinyena, Garnatxa Peluda and Syrah. Generous in aromas of ripe fruit and spices. And no shortage of minerals and body either.

Why we love this wine
The Empit is an expression of the effort made during cultivation; toil and sweat on the steepest slopes and the narrowest terraces. The name therefore refers to the steepest part of a slope. This tireless effort produces a beautifully elegant and full-bodied wine. A symphony of floral aromas of the Grenache Peluda, mineral notes of the old Carinyena and the firm body of the Syrah. Complex in both aromas and flavours, very long lasting thanks to aging for 12 months in French oak barrels.
What makes this winery so special
Modest and traditional. Celler Castellet is owned by two brothers: Jordi and Xavi Castellet. Their winery is located in the village of Porrera, in the slightly higher part of Priorat. Here the vineyards slope onto steep slopes – a modest 12 hectares. The typical slate substrate (llicorella) is particularly poor, which means that the yields are significantly lower. It does produce wines that are magnificently mineral, well structured and with a beautiful color layer. Jordi and Xavi work with indigenous varieties such as Carinyena, Garnatxa and Garnatxa Peluda.
Job's Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red color. Very diverse in the nose, with aromas of blackberry jam, vanilla, pepper and dried leaves. Smell again and you will even recognize charcuterie and smoky hints. Sultry on the tongue and very full in the mouth. Provided with a soft tannin structure and yet pleasantly refreshing.
