Appearance: Rocaplana Syrah is a deep, picota cherry red wine with a good tear formation.
On the nose: On the nose , this wine is powerfully intense with its aromas of red fruit (mulberry, black currant or ripe plum) A spice and mineral background with hints of tobacco leaves and black pepper. Sweet on the nose resulting from the milky scents also present.
On the mouth: Pleasant to the mouth. Full-bodied and smooth with silky tannins and lingering aromas of ripe fruit. An acidy , refreshing and sweet finish enticing us to ask for another glass.

Xarel·lo is our most widely planted white grape variety as there is no better place for the cultivation of this variety in the area. Other whites that we grow are the traditional ones such as Macabeu and Parellada. The red varieties grown are Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir.
The soil on the Estate is mainly a sandy-clay soil, ideal for the production of fine delicate wines. Even though the Estate is unified, there are a wide variety of soils: to the North lie the poorer and finer soils while the most fertile are in the centre. The most gravelly soil is found in the South, ideal for white wines while giving structure and colour to our red wines.
The content of organic matter and nitrogen in the soil is very low but the level of magnesium is high which ensures good acidity and sugar levels at harvest time.
At Cal Cassanyes we ensure that our winegrowing respects the environment, adopting eco-sustainable practices. Our standard: fully integrated practices that are aligned with nature.
