This variety has also been awarded the Qualified Designation of Origin for its extremely high-quality wines. Dark, intense wines with a high alcohol content, born in the volcanic soil of an area rich in history, where you can visit authentic Roman ruins in Tarragona, or go to wine festivals like the one held in Falset.
