Three star review for Solluna in The Washington Post
Dave McIntyre, long-standing wine correspondent for the Washington Post, recently awarded Solluna the “exceptional” score of three out of three, calling it an “intriguing” example of Priorat wine with “an attractive perfume of roasted fruits and wild herbs, and a sense of adventure.”
Solluna 2015 ***
Priorat, Spain, $25
Priorat is known for heady, high-alcohol reds from garnacha (grenache), grown on slate soils called “llicorella” in hills near the Mediterranean coast in northeastern Spain. This intriguing example offers attractive perfume of roasted fruits and wild herbs, and a sense of adventure.
We scour Spain looking for the best-value examples of wines that beat the competition, so we are always pleased when the critics praise our choices. Solluna is a particularly good example of what Priorat does best with attractive, premium packaging that works well in international markets.
