Characteristics of Pere Punyetes Negre
Pere Punyetes Negre is a red wine from the Penedès produced by Varias Cavas, a winery that has nearly 100 years of experience in the wine world. In 1918, the winery was founded by the Miró family in Sant Sadurní d'Anoia (Alt Penedès).
The climate in this area is pre-coastal, temperatures are around 15-18 ° C, with highs of 34 ° C in summer and minimum temperatures of near zero in winter. Frosts are more frequent and the contrast between the maximum and minimum temperatures is greater.
This wine is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (30%) and Tempranillo (20%) from vineyards planted in the town of Sant Sadurní d'Anoia.
Regarding the development, after stripping and pressing the grapes, the wine undergoes a maceration of 20-25 days. After this maceration is carried out, alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled low temperature of 16-18 ° C. Subsequently, the process is finished by malolactic fermentation.

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.
