Farming

Dolç 1+1=3 is a sweet rosé wine made from the most carefully selected carignan grapes from our Mas Moió vineyard. The vines, which were planted over 40 years ago, consistently produce grapes of exceptional quality, perfect for making this new wine. Once the grapes have reached full maturation, they are left to over ripen until the appearance of noble rot appears thanks to the effect of the Botrytis cinerea fungus. This fungus only appears under the right weather conditions in terms of humidity and temperature.

Noble rot starts to appear toward the end of September, and throughout October and part of November it feeds of the water present in the grape pulp so that all of the sugar and aromas concentrate inside the grape itself. Ageing 12 months in French oak barrel of fine grain.
