Zacinta Revi · Profile
Chemical-free, biodynamic farming, following Fukuoka principles and lunar phases which was introduced by Maria Sole Giannelli. The strikingly unusual label on this bottle of a woman sitting reading with yellow broom flowers instead of a head (all her bottles have great labels) was designed by an illustrator from Milan called Anna Neudecker. The meaning is that wine is made by people – therefore the human figure on all the labels – but their heads represent the terroir (the broom flowers grow wild around the vineyards). Artisanal wine is also knowledge, hence the book. This is a blend of Sauvignon blanc, Trebbiano, Grechetto, Sangiovese from two vineyards: Poggio alle Ficaie and Vigna Campaccio. 21-year-old vines on clay and chalk. The Sauvignon and Sangiovese are vinified as white wines, the Trebbiano and Grechetto are macerated for 20 days on skins. All spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel. Aged in cement vats for six months. Unfiltered and unfined. Convincing depth and texture. An exciting, unusual wine, vibrating at the speed of light. Total production: 5,200 bottles

A refreshing white wine with great depth and complexity. It will benefit from opening about 30 minutes prior to serving. Pairs well with grilled fish, seafood, and white meat dishes.
