Xarel-lo
"Insultingly delicious"
Producer
Production
If the wine world was a school, Can Virgili would be the playground. Family tradition of making quality organic wines meets the Virgili twin brother’s unorthodox creative minds. Democratic Wines is their personal project showcasing the fruits of their irreverent winemaking. Pronounced "chit-cha-rel-lo", the label design embraces the brother’s rascal nature and is full of Catalan insults.
This single varietal wine is made from Cava’s favourite “Xarel-lo” grape variety, from vines over 60 years in age. Night harvested, and cold grape macerated over 8 hours in stainless steel tanks, the wine is then aged on the lees for 3-4 months.
Tasting Notes
Fruit filled on the nose with aromas of apple and pear. Fresh on the palate, velvety and touches of white fruit with the structure and density from the Xarel-lo grape
