2014 Conti "Origini" Vino Rosso di Alto Peimonte, 750ml

Availability: In stock (1)

A medium-light bodied dry red from the Italian Alps. The wine is a blend of Nebbiolo, Croatina, Vespolina, Barbera and mixture of other local grapes. The vineyards are on sandy volcanic soils with the plantings being between 50 and 70 years old. Grapes are fully destemmed and fermented with native yeasts in fiberglass vats. Bottled unfiltered with a small dose of sulfites for stability.

From the mouth of the importer (Rosenthal):

"Following in the path of their father, Ermanno Conti, the Conti sisters (Elena, Anna & Paola) represent the second generation to tend the family’s single hectare in the Boca DOC, which is comprised of two hillside parcels, planted by Ermanno in 1971. The Conti family rigorously applies organic standards to their farming, does a manual harvest and continues to apply the same philosophy to the work in the cellar. Indigenous yeasts are used in fermentation and little to no sulphur is applied during the elevage and at bottling."
