Vino Giallo 2019
Vino Giallo is a blend (equal parts) of Albana and Trebbiano Romagnolo, two autochthonous grapes from the Romagna region, with an historical presence in the small village of Brisighella (Province of Ravenna). it smells of field herbs, chamomile, cereals, earth and roots and it’s a peasant wine in the noblest sense of the word!
Done by hand at end of September, yields of 70 quintals/ha for the Trebbiano and 40 quintals/ha for the Albana. The fruit is carried to the cellar in bins of modest capacity (15 kg) in order to preserve its integrity. Both Albana e Trebbiano are destemmed and vinified together, in contact with the skins for 90 days, the fermentation is spontaneous in steel tanks, no oenological additives have been used. Only a little bit of SO2 is added before the bottling (total sulfites: 20 mg/l).
