Torello Special Edition Brut Sparkling
Spain - Catalunya - Corpinnat

The soil on the Can Martí Estate was formed by sediments deposited some thousands of years ago from the Garraf Hills. One of the most characteristic features of the soil on the Estate is the presence of accumulations of calcium carbonate. The movement of rainwater through the soil dissolves the carbonates and deposits them deeper in the soil. This continuous process causes accumulations of these deposits. When these deposits become massified, after many thousands of years, they bind together and form a solid stratum called a petrocalcic horizon. This hard stratum limits the availability of water to the vines and production but is a factor in giving quality to the grapes.

The wine offers a straw yellow color, clean, transparent, fine, and persistent bubbles with a rosary formation. In the nose fresh pear aromas stand out along with delicious notes of pastry cream, white flowers, and candied fruits. On the palate, good balance and acidity. Powerful and flavorful with white flowers and notes of brioche, almond and great length.

Once all the grapes have passed over the sorting table, we press each variety separately, softly, making use of just the first pressing, the “mosto flor” (free run juice). We work with Inertys technology into our presses, which protects the must from oxidations during the grape-pressing phase. Second fermentation in bottle.
Ageing: More than 36 months in bottle. Every year there is poignettage (shaking the bottle), which causes the yeasts to mix again with the wine. In this way the sparkling wine is enriched in aromas and flavors.
5,000 (9-liter cases)

bti gold 2023"Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of luxurious vinyl unicorn pool toy, lemon oil and lime, and baked apple with a velvety, crisp, finely carbonated, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, refreshing, medium-long finish imparting shades of lemon and lime, baked yellow apple, honeycomb and dried apricot, and blanched almond. Some serious Spanish sparkles showcased in this Cava with layers of depth and complexity."
