|different soil types and colours from our area!|
- Panal: ( middle jar on the foto) Compact soils, limestone-based which show contact with river-bed sedimentation. A soil primarily composed of calcium carbonate and high in chalk or limestone.
A soft soil made primarily from fossilized seashells.
- Arena, sand, Gravelly soils ( not on the photo looks like the last one on the right)made up of granitic sands which come from the erosion of
conglomerate rock formations. These can be found mainly in and around Falset.
They have a low organic matter content and do not retain water very well.
- Llicorella ( 1 jar on the left) Stony soils,which are made up of silica slate. They have
very little organic matter.
At Terra Personas we have the mix, Loam, a crumble mixture of Panal, Arena, stones with a high content of chalk. This type of soil produces fresh and floral wines with a right balance between the alcohol and acidity with abundant polyphenol.
This type of soil has a big moisture holding capacity, and that is a good thing, because the vines have to help himself, because we do not give extra water to them!
