For almost a century, Recaredo has maintained a firm commitment to produce terroir wines that reflect the landscapes of the Alt Penedès (Barcelona) as honestly and transparently as possible. They make only vintage Brut Nature Cavas with a distinctive character marked by long ageing.
Recaredo's wines are both organic and biodynamic; they let plant cover grow spontaneously between the vines. This cover crop plays a crucial role, fostering biodiversity, loosening the soil, and regulating water retention and drainage (essential in the dry farming system practised).
Made exclusively with grapes from vineyards located on the sloping banks of the Bitlles River. The vines grow in highly calcareous soils.
Key winemaking features: 71% Monastrell, 23% Pinot Noir, 6% Garnacha. Manually harvested; macerated for 6 hours; 10% of the blend aged for 2 months in oak casks; secondary fermentation in bottle (as with all Cava and Champagne); aged in bottle on lees for a minimum of 3 years; riddled and disgorged by hand.
Fresh wild red fruit aromas along a herbaceous background and pastry notes. Flavourful and fresh attack with good long aftertaste. Ideal as an aperitif or with grilled meat, risotto or fruit desserts.
