2018 Denavolo 'Dinavolino' White Blend

Emilia - Romagna, Italy

Back this year with with an abundance of cleaner, apricot, citrus, peach and orange energy. On the palate it is fresh, energetic and dynamic, with memories of what is perceived in the nose and intense mineral aromas.

Denavolo Dinavolino is made from Ortugo, Malvasia di Candia, Marsanne and another forgotten variety from the Denavolo estate. The grapes are hand harvested and wine comes in at a light 10.5%. The must is quite acidic and allows Armani to produce without adding sulphites to the wine, since the acidity protects it significantly. When it arrives in the cellar grapes are destemmed and pressed to release the must. It is then vatted, and the must ferments with native yeasts, in contact with the skins.

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.
