Grape: Pinot Noir
Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Wine
With its vibrant magenta pink hue and frothy top, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in for a sugar bomb of a sparkling wine. But appearances can be deceptive sometimes. With no added sugar (unlike most conventional sparkling wines) this sparkling pinot noir rosato tastes more like a freshly picked blackberry from a snow-covered hedge.
Fourth generation winemaker Matteo Furlani tends to his family's small parcels of vines, high above the city of Trento. Like his father and grandfather, he sees no need to use synthetic chemicals on the land, incorporating biodynamic preparations and natural practices instead to create his incredible range of wines, which include a series of natural sparklers in milky shades of magenta, pink and white. The soil is light Dolomitic rock rich in calcium and magnesium. 750m altitude.
