Named for the priory of a 12th century order of Carthasian monks, Priorat's vineyards are necessarily on terraces due to the tightly-folded mountainous terrain of the region. Mechanism is virtually impossible because of the lay of the land, so the wines are hand-crafted. The solid structure and lively personality of the Llicorella Priorat allow it to pair with a great variety of foods. Lamb and meat as well as duck, game and robust fish will all do well. Sample your first glass with a nutty Manchego cheese from Spain; it will really bring out the mountain herbs of this Priorat. The hint of fruit in this focused red will be delicious with crisp-skinned rotisserie duck served with a sweet-tart cherry chutney. A pan of paella made with fideo noodles instead of rice will bring out the more earthy, spicy side of this Llicorella. We like ours with sausage, chicken and/or duck. If you want something simple, grill up some lamb sausages and serve them with oven-roasted garlic potatoes. Voy a tener dos! Pour another generous glass and savor it with a rich, full-flavored Spanish Zamorano cheese. Its texture melts in your mouth and is the perfect ending to what will no doubt be a great meal.
