italy low intervention organic

Controvento ‘Alto Mare’ Vino Bianco 2018

Estate: Vincenzo Di Meo makes wine the same way his grandfather did, with minimal intervention, along with organic and biodynamic methods. Located in Rocca San Giovanni in Abruzzo overlooking the Adriatic Sea, the 5 hectare estate is certified organic.

Winemaking: Vines are in clay and calcareous soil. Hand harvested, spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts with skin contact for 2 days in stainless steel, aged in stainless steel, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulphites.

Tasting Notes: Deep gold amber in colour, very aromatic; with orange, nectarine, sea spray, apple, chamomile, wildflowers, lavender, roasted nuts and dusty earth. Tangerine, saline minerality, pear, chamomile, lavender, chalky minerality are framed by light green tea tannins and tangy acidity. A nutty streak runs thru to orange peel and lemon on the salty finish. Electric, refreshing, expressive.
