Food Pairing:
Alma de Llicorella

Priorat, Garnacha/Cariñena blend

Expert Tips

This gutsy wine needs food of character to stand up to it. Winemaker Josep Maria Fuentes suggests starting with Grilled Mignon Chops or Sole with Almond Sauce and ending with the hardy taste of Roquefort cheese.

Famed sommelier Lisa Minucci, whose extensive experience includes many top San Francisco and Napa restaurants as well as Sherry Lehman Wine and Spirits in New York, says, "The Priorat wine with Osso Bucco is pretty divine!"
