Lightly citrus, easy-going dry white from the north of Italy. Fermented in stainless steel at cool temperatures with the native yeasts. The lees are frequently stirred to instill a smooth viscosity. Made without any added sulfites and organic grapes.
From the mouth of the importer (Field Blend Selections):
"The De Stefani family has been producing wines in the Veneto region in Italy for four generations, dating back to the late 1800s. Based in Refrontolo, a small, hilly village between the two famous Prosecco towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, Alessandro De Stefani focusses on small production wines made naturally. There are a wide variety of bottlings available under both the De Stefani line and the second label, Redentore.
The name Redentore is an homage to the culture of Venice. Redentore, meaning redemption, is meant to evoke the traditional Redentore Festival, held every third weekend in July in Venice. The Festival celebrates the end of the plague that struck Venice between 1575 and 1577.
Both De Stefani and Redentore wines are made using only organic grapes. No chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers are used. In fact, Alessandro De Stefani goes out of his way to create an environment conducive to the proliferation of good insects, wild animals and microorganisms in the soil. He even prepares his own compost every year."
