Vineyard Notes: Litrona is produced from biodynamically farmed young estate-grafted vines of Xarello Vermell mixed with 54-year-old vines of regular white Xarello at an elevation of 400m.

Winemaking Notes: The Xarel-lo is destemmed and undergoes spontaneous fermentation on the skins for 5 days in cement. It is pressed and continues to age in the same cement vat for about 10 months before bottling unfiltered without sulfites.

Tasting Notes: The Litrona Xarel-lo Vermell is a little hazy in the glass, not too fruity, super light-bodied, and a tad wild on the palate.

About the Label: If you know anything about biodynamic farming, then you probably know it has something to do with the moon, cow dung, and how lunar cycles and animal life affect the biodiversity of a crop. Well, Finca Parera, in addition to growing grapes, also grows cherries, olives, almonds, and honey all of which certified biodynamic. Located in the Alt Penedes region a.k.a. Cava Country, Xarel-lo Vermell is the pink-skinned version of Xarel-lo.

The Liter Bottle: The one liter bottle holds 33% more wine than the average 750ml, which means 2 more glasses of wine per bottle!
