The Marco family trace their history in the Priorat town of Porrera to the first Catalunyan census of 1497. After a hiatus instigated by the Phylloxera outbreak and time spent in Barcelona, the family returned to the tenure of their retained lands in 1898 and eventually the modern winery and Bodega were created a century later. Their four separate terraced vineyard plots range in altitude from 200 to 700m on the steep Mediterranean influenced hillsides of the region. The local licorella slate soils are farmed biodynamically and the wines are made in their state of the art gravity fed winery, built in 2001 into the hillside.
Marco Abella Mas Mallola (MARU ONLY) 2017
Mas Mallola represents the style of Porrera, the distinctive village in Priorat where Marco Abella is based. Porrera wines are the highest altitude of the nine Priorat villages and are notable for their high acidity and balanced character. Mas Mallola is a blend of the Priorat’s two indigenous varieties, Grenache (63%) and Carignan (20%), with an added touch of Cabernet Sauvignon (11%) and Merlot (6%). The grapes come from Estate organic vineyards that are treated using biodynamic methods. The wine is aged in French oak barrels from five different coopers, lending it a balanced complexity. Raspberry, cherry, spice and incense. Light earth flavors with dense velvety tannins
