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.See the Denavolo collection here
