WHAT THE WINERY SAYS
Blending made in the vineyard, harvested by hand. Elaborated following the ancestral method of only one fermentation. It starts in clay amphora 720lts with the grape skins and it ends in the bottle. It is commercialised without disgorging, with its own natural lees. High altitude vineyards, located 700m above sea level in the Pla de Manlleu area(Alt Penedès). The soil is poor, stony and calcareous, with a very diverse undergrowth, surrounded by pine trees, oak trees and some gorse. Also with a good presence of aromatic herbs such as thyme and arnica. The fauna is diverse and rich in species, in particular the wild boar, a beast cursed by the peasants of the area for the destruction it causes in the vineyard during the harvest.
