Barcino Belle Epoque Cava Brut
Staff Comments: An elegant blend of Xarello, Macabeo, and Parellada from Spain! This is your “go to” favorite sparkler! Crisp, refreshing and so smooth on the palate. Lime zest, pie crust, Manuka honey with a hint of brioche. The teeny tiny bubbles make you want more! Serve this with a spicy shrimp dip, charcuterie or an aged Parmesan cheese. You’ll love the Granny apple finish.
Barcino is aged anywhere between 12 to 18 months in its lees. Secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle following the strict Champagne method. This approach brings forward a creamier, more delicate and complex style. The grapes that make up Barcino Brut are indigenous to this area of Spain: Xarello (Cha-reh-lo) provides body and fatness, Macabeu (Maka-Beyu) the aromatics and Parellada (Pa-re-ya-da) a bright fresh zestiness.

Wine AdvocateThis sensational non-vintage Barcino Cava was made from a solera system where the dosage was started in the 1940s. A blend of 55% Xarello, 25% Macabeo and 20% Parellada, from vines planted in 1995, this crisp, delicious, dry sparkler spent 12 months on its lees. Attractive notes of honeyed brioche, poached pear and caramelized grapefruit jump from the glass of this zesty, light-bodied, exceptionally well-crafted, pure, fresh cava. Enjoy it over the next year.-RP
