An interesting example of what a Pinot Noir can make of itself in the Penedès region. A one hundred per cent Pinot Noir sourced from the Mas Escorpí vineyard, 23 years-old and supplying very limited yields, which results in this wine being produced only in special vintage years. Fermented and macerated in French oak casks and matured on its fine lees until the first racking in spring, after 9 months spent in new barrels the wine is then bottled, where it rounds off for at least a further year.
