Cristiana Meggiolaro - Veneto Durello Frizzante Sotocà 2016
From the importer-
From a 1.15 hectare vineyard, south facing vineyard at 450 meters above sea level. 30 year old vines in volcanic soil. Full grapes are soft-pressed, without removing the stalks (Whole Cluster fermentation). Fermentation comes in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature and indigenous yeast. Maturation in stainless steel tanks with their yeast, with bàtonnage. Secondary fermentation in bottle, unfiltered.
Cristiana Meggiolaro and her husband Riccardo decided to leave behind their old lives and start making wine in the Veneto in 2004.
Their focus is making small quantities of natural wine, centered around the Garganega grape as well as the indigenous Durella.
