About the maker
With Guilio Armani (Denavolo) at the helm, La Stoppa have made some of the most sought after natural wines in Italy.
The estate practices organic viticulture with only copper and sulphur treatments used. The vines are planted at a density of 6000 vines per hectare producing incredibly low yields with local varieties Malvasia di Candia, Ortrugo, Trebbiano, Bonarda, Barbera and also small parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Grapes are hand harvested and the winemaking process is in tune with the natural wine philosophy, no yeast additions, no fining, no filtration and sulphur only used at bottling for the young wines and Malvasia frizzante and none at all for the rest.See the La Stoppa collection here
