Rightfully earned a hero status. Empit Selecció comes from the legendary mountains of Priorat and is made in very limited productions. A selection of the very best Carinyena from more than 100 year old vines. As surprising as it is seductive, with ripe tannins and an arsenal of fruity and spicy aromas.

Why we love this wine
The vineyards of family estate La Solana de Mas d'en Pubill are almost a century old. In summer and autumn they are heated by the scorching midday sun, which gives the grapes the necessary ripening. Empit Selecció is also aged for another 15 months in fine-grained French oak. This beautiful wine lasts a long time. That means even more time and space to develop. Well structured and deep purplish red in colour. Rich in eccentric aromas, intense flavors and minerals that make it irresistible to taste. A great expression of the terroir from which it was born.
What makes this winery so special
True to tradition and always modest. Celler Castellet is owned by two brothers: Jordi and Xavi Castellet. Their winery is located in Porrera, a small village 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
Aromas of black fruit, herbs and spices begin subtly. But, give it time and you'll find yourself in a fruity oasis of blackberry, cassis, cinnamon, nutmeg and thyme. Supplemented with pronounced scents of tobacco, roasted coffee beans, charcuterie and an unmistakable minerality. Full of body and rich in taste, but gracefully balanced by a fine freshness and acidity.
