An organic xarel·lo wine with minimum intervention
From the flagship variety of the Penedès, the xarel-lo, comes this organic single-varietal wine. Calcari brings together the purest and most sincere expression of this ancestral variety, native to our territory and strongly rooted in our winemaking tradition.
Its characteristics give it great versatility, making it a variety suitable for the production of long-aged sparkling wines or wines with minimal intervention such as Calcari, a wine that allows us to see its great expressive capacity and its mineral character.
Very pale straw yellow colour. Clear and transparent.
A markedly varietal nose combining the ripest pear, almost candied, and banana with creamy notes from working with the fine lees in the vat.
The mouth, with volume despite its freshness, fills us with memories of a Tarte Tatin of pears on a background of crème anglaise.
“On the palate, the delicious white flowers and minerality take on citrus notes and a faint hint of green apple as the wine makes its way linearly across the palate.”

Calcari is made from the flagship Penedès variety, Xarel·lo, grown organically on our Penedès estates.
Hand harvested. After a light pellicular maceration of 4 hours, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats for 18 days at an average temperature of 16 °C. After fermentation, the wine remains in contact with the fine lees from the fermentation for 3 months with daily bâtonnage to put the lees in suspension for several minutes a day.
Wine suitable for vegans.
Organic wine made with minimal intervention in the cellar.
