The Sun and The Moon combine with the dense slate "llicorella" soils of Priorat to create an intense and explosive wine of complexity, character and finesse - vines, like people, often thrive upon adversity. For this reason, the name of this wine is a kind of pun that consists of the words "sol" and "lluna", which means “sun” and “moon”.
Solluna is aged 10 months in French oak barrels with temperature-controlled fermentation.
Very well defined and bright, high intensity, almost opaque red purplish colour. Perfumed and fresh aroma.
