2019 DO.T.E don't pet nat me
Filippo Calabresi discovered his vineyard in Cortona, Tuscany in 2014 where he began to recover the vines that are now growing predominately Syrah, planted in 2002 and Viognier that was planted in 1991.
Harvested on September 11th, spontaneously fermented in steel, 7 days of skin contact, aged 5 months also in steel, then blended with Pignoletto must (from Modena hills) frozen during harvest and bottled the day after without clarification and filtration. Re-fermented in bottle and kept in the cellar for 4 months. Not disgorged. When you open this bottle it is very active and spiky on the tongue (hence the cactus on the label)
Where: Tuscany, Italy
What: Trebbiano, Malvasia, Grechetto
How: This is a conversation starter. If you want to impress your hipster mates, bring this to the table
