Hailing from Piedmont, in the mid 90’s architects Antonella Gerosa & Massimo Marchiori moved to Barcelona.
But they yearned a slower life style, to grow there own produce and reconnect with the land, so they searched the surrounding areas and in 2001 found a property in Bonastre, just over an hour south of Barcelona. This isolated property “El Maiol” is surrounded by a protected forest, and was planted with almond and olive trees, interspersed with rosemary, thyme and Mediterranean scrub. This is Cartoixa Vermell. From the Xarello family, a white grape with red flesh, 90 days on skins... Exotic and inviting, musk, pepper and pink grapefruit, this vintage displays more fruit than phenolics. Slippery, galangal undertones, feathery phenolics, enticing and fresh.
