2018 Denavolo Catavela White Blend

Emilia - Romagna, Italy

NEW DENAVOLO! A combination of grapes from the Denavolo estate, Malvasia Aromatica di Candia, Marsanne, Ortrugo, Trebbiano Romagnolo. With very few notes about the process from the winemaker, it's believed there was 7 days of spontaneous fermentation in steel with skins. The wine is made from young vines cultivated at a high altitude and on a stony and chalky soil.

Catavela has slightly golden yellow colour due to the extended maceration on the skins. The nose contains aromatic scents of fruit, with beautiful floral notes. In the mouth it is vibrant with good body, pulpy, fresh and with slightly perceptible tannins.

About the maker

The biodynamic Denavolo vineyard, found in Travo, Italy, produces wines that are often tannin rich but are quite elegant tasting.

Denavolo is the brain child of Giulio Armani. The vineyards, we haven't been to, but are located on an estate in Travo, 11km south of La Stoppa. The vineyard is completely biodynamic, with varieties including Malvasia di Candia, Ortuga Marsanne and an old unidentified local variety. Giulio seems to be constantly experimenting: oak versus tank, parcel selection versus whole vineyard, long versus short maceration, but certain components always remain the same. Absolute dedication to harmony with nature, natural fermentations and processes, skin contact and no filtering are all the healthy foundation for the best wine he can make.
