Characteristics of Amós Bañeres El Pi
Amós Bañeres El Pi is a white wine from the D.O. Penedés produced by Amós Bañeres in Sant Martí Sarroca, Barcelona.
Amós Bañeres is a winemaker who respects the environment that surrounds him, producing wines that truly reflect their surroundings. The vineyards are therefore cultivated and worked using organic viticulture, while the wines are produced in using artisan methods.
The vines used for El Pi have an average age of 50 years, where the Xarel.lo variety grows on calcareous-clay soils. The grapes are harvested by hand and are destemmed on entering the winery. The grapes undergo maceration for 7 days and undergo fermentation using native yeasts. The wine is the stabilised for 8 months in oak barrels without battonage.
Amós Bañeres El Pi is a wine with a slightly orange colour due to the maceration which lasts for 7 days with the skins intact. This is a wine with structure, but fresh and mineral at the same time.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
