Characteristics of Recaredo Tribut Segona Plenitud
Recaredo Tribut Segona Plenitud is a Corpinnat sparkling wine produced by the Recaredo winery in the heart of the Penedés, Sant Sadurní d'Anoia (Barcelona).
Recaredo is a family winery with over 90 years of history. They currently cultivate 50 hectares of family vineyards in the Alt Penedés with a commitment to preserve biodiversity and the land that has led them to pursue the principles of biodynamics and organic farming. Another of their principles is working with long aging periods and Brut Nature, i.e. without any type of dosage or added sugar during bottling. All the production, vinification and aging of the Recaredo sparkling wines is carried out completely in the winery’s facilities.
Recaredo Tribut Segona Plenitud is a sparkling wine made with Xarel·lo and Chardonnay grapes. The Xarel·lo is fermented and aged for 10 months in barrels, while the Chardonnay was kept in stainless steel vats at all times. This sparkling wine is a Brut Nature with 244 months of aging (more than 20 years) and a limited production of 244 bottles.
Recaredo Tribut Segona Plenitud is a tribute to the second generation of the family, Josep and Antoni Mata. Over 60 vintages have passed though the hands of these two brothers, produced with humility, discretion and sacrifice.
Recaredo Tribut Segona Plenitud 1996 is an extraordinary, unique and distinguished cava. Elegant on the nose, the yeasty aromas stand out with smoky notes and the delicate toasted notes of the barrel aging. On the palate it is intense and complex with an infinity of aromas and flavors, and with a surprising youthfulness that contrasts with the perfect integration of the bubbles. A spectacle within the reach of a very select few.
Recaredo is one of those cava family-run wineries that best express the relation between architecture, wine and nature, providing us with a clear idea of what making wine is, taking the natural elements of the vine. Their projects are always based on exploring the spatial relations of nature to know how to precisely articulate its relation with time inside of the underground caves, thus giving that intrinsic personality to their wines. And this is why the best wine aficionados and critiques extremely admire the effort and the passion that the Mata family has put into it throughout its winemaking history. Among other things, they have known how to respect, within their business project, the conditions of the natural environment, of the area, the geography and the climate, and they have been attentive to the inevitable progress of the oenological culture.
