Estate: Paride Benedetti is dedicated to traditional grapes and working in harmony with nature. Located in the heart of Romagna, his estate was created in the early 1960s when his father’s property was joined with his paternal grandfather’s land. The 100 hectare estate has 12 hectares of traditional Romagna vines; Sangiovese, Albana, Famoso and Centesimino. The estate is certified organic and biodynamic.
Philosophy: “We are committed to working in harmony with the broader movements, respecting the rhythms and cycles of nature, the cosmic influences generated by the sun, moon and celestial bodies, we work “together with” and not “against” nature. Biodynamics is above all a work on ourselves, which helps us to recover the sense of unity of the cosmos.”
Winemaking: Grapes are from vines planted in 2000, 300 meters in elevation, in clay-loamy soil with south-east exposure. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, bottled in the Spring with second fermentation in the bottle. [Metodo Ancestrale or Pét-Nat method] Unfiltered, no added sulphites, zero dosage.
Tasting Notes: Light pink in colour, with delicate aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit, cranberry, wildflowers and dusty minerality. Wild strawberry, candied violet, chalky minerality and fresh acidity are buoyed by tight fizz. Violet, strawberry and pink grapefruit linger on the fizzy finish. Pure, genteel, elegant.
