Notes from the Winemaker:
The wines of Priorat are today Spain finest reds. They are equally of the best that the French Mediterranean and all of Italy produces. It is a wild region, of steep, terraced vineyards that date to Roman times. Its typical terroir is composed mainly of ragged and broken slate (schist, or llicorella in the Catalan dialect), lending distinct character and finesse to the region's best wines. Sara Perez wine making at Mas Martinet is at once simple and brilliant as described by Drew Matich from Pulling the Cork, August 2009: "... the bottom line is this: Sara's wines faithfully reflect the grapes of the vineyard in any given year. There are no winemaker games played to optimize or equalize the wine across different vintages. The grapes are blended, fermented, and aged as they come out of the vineyard. And from our tastings, the results were amazing."

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Degustacio 7 is one of the experiments that Jose Lluis Perez carries out (there's no 2010 version of this wine). This is a relatively young Carinena from the Martinet Bru vineyard. Two 500-liter barrels were fermented and the wine aged in new 300-liter barrels. Number 6 is the same wine but vinified with whole clusters (but we didn't taste it as there was not a single bottle to be found in the winery!). It has a floral nose and notes of ripe black fruit with some soil notes, pungent acidity and a long aftertaste. This is almost a virtual wine, as only 800 bottles were produced. Drink now-2018." - Luis Gutierrez (Feb 2014)
