Product Description

A varietal Xarel·lo, Albet i Noya El Fanio is made by Albet i Noya. Based in Penedès, the winery pioneered the introduction of organic farming in Catalonia almost 40 years ago.

Produced from a 2-hectare vineyard planted in 1948, the harvest was carried out manually. Once in the cellar, this Spanish white wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 18 days under controlled temperature.

After that, this organic white wine was aged for 8 months: one third was kept in the tanks, one third was aged in egg-shaped concrete vats, which allow for natural micro-oxygenation and recirculation, and one third went through the process in acacia barrels, less invasive than the oak ones.

Finally, the wine musts were blended, and Albet i Noya El Fanio 2021 was gently filtered and bottled.

This varietal white wine from Penedès has a limited production. Pair with rice dishes and tapas.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The white wine Albet i Noya El Fanio is pale straw with dim golden tinges.


Characteristic and well defined, this organic Xarel·lo smells of apples, peaches and pears. There are dim suggestions of citrus, and some mineral and earthy notes, underpinned by remembrances of aromatic herbs, flowers and fennel.


Fresh, unmasked and suggestive, this white wine from Albet i Noya has a substantial body, balanced by a first-rate acidity which provides a steely backbone. Long finish, with remembrances of white flowers, a bitter note and some mineral undertones.

Our personal opinion

Quite original, Albet i Noya El Fanio 2021 from Penedès is a very pleasant Xarel·lo.
