Characteristics of Sicus Xarel·lo
Sicus Xarel·lo is a white wine from Penedès produced by Sicus in Bonastre, Tarragona.
Sicus is Eduard Pie´s personal project. A young wine grower of the area, he wanted to reinterpret the land, returning to native varieties and using production techniques that respect the grapes.
Sicus Xarel·lo comes from a plantation called La Caseta, located 180 metres above sea level and 6km from the sea on shallow clay-limestone soils scarce in organic materials.
Production starts with a pre-fermentation cold maceration in order to concentrate the aromatic compounds of the grapes, it is pressed and ferments in ceramic amphoras at a controlled temperature of 12ºC. It is aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
Serve at 8ºC

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.
