Federico and Carola's biodynamic farm is 200m above sea level on the hillsides of Bologna. Taking over the estate in 2005 and swiftly converting to biodynamics, making honest, terroir-expressive wine with a hands-off approach.
This is their 'perpetual cuvée', somewhat like a solera system used in sherry. A blend of pignoletto, alionza, albana and malvasia, different vintages, different vessels, constantly topped up with younger wine to prevent oxidation. Freshness and bright fruit imparted by the young wine with a savoury, saline, nutty component from the mature. Intriguing, a joy to drink.
