Characteristics of L' Avi Arrufi

L'Avi Arrufí is a red wine produced in D.O. Terra Alta by Celler Piñol, in Batea, west of Tarragona.

Celler Piñol is a family-run winery founded in 1947, producing mainly handcrafted wine. It was not until 1995 that they bottled their first wine. They manage 17 hectares, making wines with high expression and complexity, with local and foreign varieties. They advocate for local varieties, such as the White Grenache, the Carignan and the Morenillo. With other producers of the area, they are making a great effort to bring back the Morenillo variety, which is almost abandoned and is only used to complete coupages with other grapes.

The vineyard of Celler Piñol is located in Batea, between 400 and 500 metres of altitude, planted mainly on clayey-calcareous soils. The climate is Mediterranean. They carry out organic cultivation in the entire vineyard.

 

L'Avi Arrufí is a wine made from Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, from vineyards that are located at 450 meters above sea level, planted on clayey-calcareous soils that are poor in organic matter.

After the manual harvest, grapes ferment in stainless steel deposits, with a maceration of 26 days. Before the final coupage, it goes through malolactic fermentation in these same deposits. After the coupage, the wine is aged in new French and American oak barrels for 18 months. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 2 years.

Designation of Origin D.O. Terra Alta

Winery Celler Piñol

Wines from Terra Alta boast a unique character. This is down to numerous factors, including the region's unique wine culture, the location of the vineyards in the inland Mediterranean, and the abundance of native varieties including the Garnacha Blanca, whose white wines perhaps best express the unique character of the terroir. It is for this reason that these wines hold their own distinctive classification of “Terra Alta Garnacha Blanca”.
