Agustí Torello Roca "Cantallops Xarel·lo" 2017

  • A brand new 100% Xarello (meaning “Song of the wolf”) from one of the more cutting-edge wineries in the Costers de l’Ordal subzone of Penedès, AT Roca. Known for their high-quality sparkling wines, this still one is incredibly mineral-driven and complex. Certified organic farming, hand-harvested, native yeasts - all of the things we expect and love. Grown on limestone-heavy soil and high elevation. This wine is aged in a combination of neutral oak and concrete egg for 9 months, and an additional year in bottle before release. Bottled unfiltered. Xarello with time to evolve in the bottle becomes more phenolic and complex. Filled with great minerality, medium-bodied, and a layered intriguing finish. This is a bottle to have with savory mediterranian fare or simply on its own.
