Agustí Torelló Roca - AT Roca - "Anima Mundi Camí dels Xops" Ancestral
Agustí Torello Roca and his father and aunt, Agustí Torello Sibill and Lali Torello Sibill, founded AT Roca in 2013 with a focus on vineyards and wines with a sense of place. The name Agustí Torello is well-known and established in Penedès, having produced quality Cava for three generations under the label Agustí Torello Mata, named after the grandfather of the family. Agustí (the son) studied winemaking in Tarragona, and afterward apprenticed with vigneron Bruno Michel, one of Champagne’s pioneers of organic farming.
The “Cami dels Xops” is an Ancestral-method sparkling wine from organically grown Macabeo (mostly) and Xarello grapes. Bottled unfiltered/fined. This is a perky, mineral-driven bottle of bubbles that has a super foamy mouthfeel and completely dry in a delicate sort of way. Lovely as an aperitif or with crudite & other snacks.
