This mineral, spicy Mediterranean red drinks like a wine two times its price. Produced from organically grown grapes at high elevation, 45 minutes south of Barcelona in the mountains of Tarragona overlooking the Mediterranean. 

The Romans planted vineyards in this area during the 3rd century; Ludovicus pays tribute to the Roman heritage of this region,  adjecent to the acclaimed Priorat region. As in Priorat, Garnacha and Mazuelo (aka Cariñena, or Samsó) are the most commonly planted grapes. The Garnacha that grows in Terra Alta is among the finest in Spain due to three factors: the elevation, the limestone soil and the age of the vines.
