Margalló is the name of an indigenous Mediterranean plant whose habitat is perfectly suited to the harshness of the barren, rocky soils in the Baix Penedès and Garraf region. The plant reflects the personality of this wine and the terrain that gave rise to it. This is a Mediterranean wine: concentrated and with plenty of character from the harsh terrain; expressive, elegant and complex from the region’s outstanding climatic properties and the limited production of the vineyards from which it originates.
