♦ Story of the Wine
Gallina de Piel Ikigall is a wine of a carefree character made from rigor, with a base of xarel.lo of very good quality, complemented with Malvasía de Sitges and Moscatel de Alejandría, with a fragrant and evocative nose and a dry palate. Inspired by the Japanese concept “Ikigai” “the reason to live”, this is a wine that we humbly believe is worth living.
♦ Wine Paring Recommendation
Ideal to enjoy with friends by the glass and with some snacks. We propose also a regional dish: Xató, a winter salad from Penedès
♦ Serving Tips
The liturgy of the wine service recommends tasting it between 10-12°C with a glass such as Riedel Vinum Sauvignon Blanc, but we will be pleased if you enjoy it with what, when and however you choose
