Tasting notes on the wine: 

“Holy smokes this wine is wild! Made from a blend of old vine xarello and xarello vermell, a rare thicker-skinned red variant of xarello, Litrona is summer in a bottle. A liter bottle that is. This wine is tart-taste with notes of salted pineapple and lemon peel. It also has a hint of floral notes, which really adds to this wine’s complexity. Grab a picnic blanket, assemble a Mediterranean mezze platter, and get outside with this beauty!” — Sarah Pierre

About the winemaker: 

“In 1999, Rubèn Parera, alongside his father Jordi, established Bodega Finca
Parera, and the rest was history. Located in the Penedes region of Spain which is largely known for its cava production, Finca Parera, once organic, is now exclusively farming biodynamic and making waves in the area. Rubèn’s hands-off winemaking technique allows the wines to express themselves in their purest form leaving them full of personality.
