A FUNKY RED WITH DARK BERRY CHARACTER, FLORAL & EARTHY NOTES, FINE TANNINS GREAT ACIDITY TO FINISH. IT’S EASY TO PAIR WITH GRILLED OCTOPUS, ROASTED MEAT & GRILLED VEGETABLES.

CURIOSITY

LIKE MANY GREAT VINEYARDS IN VENETO, THIS WAS PREVIOUSLY AN AREA OF SIGNIFICANT VOLCANIC ACTIVITY AND THE FOSSILISED SOILS THAT REMAIN ARE PERFECT FOR GROWING NATIVE GRAPES. ALFONSO WORKS HIS VINES WITH BIODYNAMIC PRACTISES, THE APPROACH THAT HE HAS IN THE CELLAR IS OLD SCHOOL AND UNFUSSY. THE WINES ARE FERMENTED ON THE SKINS WITH WILD YEASTS AND REST ON THEIR LEES IN CONCRETE VATS UNTIL BOTTLING.
