Marco Abella Mas Mallola Priorat 2016 - 750ml
92 Points Wine Enthusiast
Up front, blackberry, prune and vanilla aromas are smooth and not loud. Freshness and mild acidity push the palate, which combines smoky oak with baked berry flavors. The finish is brusque and bumpy but also long. This is Priorat in fine light.
Marco Abella wines come from the Priorat region in Catalonia, Spain and embrace their rich legacy, geographic altitude, unique soil, and vineyard orientation to create harmonious products through bio-dynamic farming and expert wine making. Produced by the Marco family, whose wine-making roots trace back to the 15th century, the wines exemplify quality at every stage: 100% estate grown fruit coming from the highest altitude vineyards, hand picking and sorting, and a non-interventionist approach. The wine is beautifully packaged with labels created by the renowned Catalan abstract painter Josep Guinovart.
Mas Mallola is a blend of the Priora’s two indigenous varieties, Grenache and Carignan, with an added touch of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. This wine is aged for 20 months in French oak barrels from five different coopers, lending it a balanced complexity. Mas Mallola is produced from our organic vineyards, which are treated using biodynamic methods adapted to our environment.
Differences in altitude, soil and orientation make each of our vineyards unique, and this is reflected in our wines. Our philosophy is to ensure that our wines express this authenticity, typicity and essence, while fully respecting the environment.

Shipping wine around the country is very expensive. We charge about a third less than what it actually costs us. If you need to return your order (or if the wine gets returned back to us because you were unable to receive it after 3 attempts and you didn't email us to make other arrangements), we need to collect a return shipping fee that is up to double the amount of the shipping you paid. Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
