The Designation of Origin DO Montsant is located in the centre of Catalonia,
forming a ring around the famous and exclusive DOQ Priorat. DO Montsant
is known as the “diamond in the rough”, because although it is a DO which
was created only a few years ago, it already has a prestigious reputation
throughout the world. In fact, its prestige is growing so fast that DO Montsant
is today one of the world’s top-rated regions.
Wine has been produced in the Montsant area for thousands of years. It
is a very isolated area, depending exclusively on agricultural production
methods that respect the environment and which serve as a good example of
environmental preservation. Vineyards spread out across the mountainous
slopes among olive groves, forests, and stone.
Perlat was a pioneer in DO Montsant. Today it still sets the pace with its fresh,
contemporary and complex style, which brings Perlat to the forefront of
89 Points Wine & Spirits (Best Buy) From a cooperative founded in 1942, this is is
a garnacha to open at the dinner table. Fruitforward, with notes of blackberry, blueberry
and black cherry, it has enough tannins to
warrant decanting before serving with something meaty, like burnt ends.
