2242 – WHITE WINE THE XITXAREL·LO of D.O. PENEDÈS
Characteristics: An insultingly delicious wine that will delight the finest palates, and the sharpest tongues.
Production: The Xitxarel·lo is a white wine made with the native Penedès variety par excellence: xarel·lo. A much-loved variety, resistant to drought and heat, which has managed to overcome the passage of time and become the essence of the territory. The climatic diversity of the Penedès and the contrast between maximum and minimum temperatures allows this variety to reach unique levels of excellence.Xitxarel·lo is born on the farm of Mas Cortei, located 340 m above sea level in the municipality of Granada, in the middle of Alt Penedès. The vineyards were planted by former landlords during the 1950s, and are an example of the good adaptation of Xarel·lo to the region. The vines, planted in clayey and sandy soil, have a great capacity for water accumulation thanks to the stream that borders the vineyard. A wine well-born and well-raised in an ideal place.
