Amphora Roja is a complex, spontaneously fermented natural wine, fermented and aged in amphorae specially made from clay from the vineyards the xarel·lo grapes are grown in. “Bruised golden apple, very honeyed, nearly petrol-like notes; cured lime peel, a great deal of forest floor, earthiness, and white-mushroom notes. Fresh and very lively on the palate, this is a unique wine with a long life ahead of it.” The World of Fine Wine
