2019 Ceppaiolo Ceppnat
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. Earlier harvest field blend from 80 year old vines - Malvasia, Trebbiano (Trubiano), San Colombano, Uva Pecora. Spontaneous fermentation, aged in fiberglass. Frozen must from original harvest added for secondary fermentation in bottle. No added sulfur and no filtering or fining.
Where: Umbria, Italy
What: White Blend
How: It's Fizzy so get it icy cold, open it over a bucket or with a bunch of mates, each holding something to catch it in
