Wine Description:
This exceptional single-varietal Xarel·lo spends time deep in the cellar within concrete eggs, allowing it to interact with oxygen in a fair and precise manner. This unique aging method imparts vibrancy and freshness to the Xarel·lo, preserving its aromas and delivering them gracefully to the glass. The combination of concrete, acacia, and stainless steel further enhances the typically floral notes, evoking memories of honey and nuts that beautifully complement various desserts. Carefully crafted, this Xarel·lo reflects the time spent in the cellar through its nuanced and exquisite profile, offering a sensory delight for those who appreciate meticulous winemaking.
