Grape: Pinot Noir
Viticulture: Organic farming / Natural Winemaking
Vinification: Pinot Nero from young vines planted some six hundred metres above sea level at the foot of the Dolomites. The fruit spent twelve hours on the skins, before being pressed off to tank to rest until the following spring when it was put into bottle with a concentrated must made from passito grapes to cause a second fermentation.
Super fresh sparkling with light pink reflections in the glass and gentle flavours of alpine strawberries, minerals and herbs.
In 2010 Alex planted one and a half hectares of Pinot Nero on his family’s farm in Belluno, right at the foot of the Dolomites. This dramatic vineyard surrounded by mountains is planted over alluvial marl some six hundred metres above sea level, near the banks of the River Piave. His family live in an old monastery which dates back to the 16th Century, keeping donkeys, goats and cows alongside the vines. The wines from this site are named Pedecastello, after the road that winds amongst the mountains.
