Raventós i Blanc, 'De Nit'
“Looking for color, I found Monastrell from the western part of the Serral hill, which provides complexity without losing freshness.”
-Pepe Raventós, Owner & Winemaker, Raventós i Blanc
The grapes for the De Nit come from three separate plots, all of which have deep soil with a clay loam texture - this provides the wine with freshness and elegance. The Monastrell plot, situated on the terraces on the Serral hill, marks the De Nit sparkling wine with its personality.
The grapes for the De Nit are farmed using biodynamic viticulture. The vineyards utilize spontaneous plant cover, which fosters biodiversity, fertility and life in the soil. They apply manure that comes from animals that live on the estate, which is composted during the winter. The grapes are hand harvested, and undergo a first fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, separating varieties and soil types, blending, and a second fermentation in the bottle. The wine is aged for a minimum of 18 months with the lees in bottle. The disgorgement date will always appear on the label.
