2019 Ceppaiolo Ceppa Rosso
This tiny property acts as the purest, most rudimentary "laboratory" for Danilo Marcucci's natural wine designs. Here no compromise is taken. Given the exceedingly small scale of the property, 4 rows of vines that total less than 1 hectare, Danilo and his friend Riccardo can do things on a different wavelength...no time frames, no yielding. Field blend from 80 year old vines - Vernaccia, Sangiovese, Aleatico & Nebbiolo of Gubbio. Spontaneous fermentation with 10 days skin contact. Aged in cement. No added sulfur and no filtering or fining.
Where: Umbria, Italy
What: Red Blend
How: All strawberries and sour cherries, great afternoon drinking, high acid so think of nice fatty snacks
