Estate: A pioneering force in Romagna, Sergio Navacchia founded Tre Monti along with his wife Thea in 1974. The winery consists of 2 separate estates, for a total of 55 hectares [135 acres], located in the hills of Imola and Forlì, in Romagna, northern Italy. Sergio was one of the first in the area to introduce dense vine plantings, non-traditional grape varietals and crafted one of the first Romagna Sangiovese to be awarded by Wine Spectator. When Thea passed away in 1989, sons Vittorio and David dedicated themselves to the estate. For an absolutely entertaining peek into the Navacchia men, check out their bio page here.
Winemaking: Vineyards are certified organic, and additionally farmed sustainably, along with including a few biodynamic practices. Minimal intervention is applied in both the vineyard and cellar. Grapes are from vines planted in 1995, soils are clay and silt.
Tasting Notes: Light gold in colour with aromas of lemon, apple, wildflowers and honey. Red apple, honey, cinnamon and a hint of toast are backed by citrus acidity and consistent fizz. Cinnamon, honey and lemon linger on the peppy finish. Cheerful, bright and fun.
