Grapes: Pavana della Valsugana, Negrara, Marzemino, Teroldego, Lagrein
Region: Alto Adige, Italy
Well, those grapes are a mouthful. Don't worry, you'll never get tested on those ones during your wine journey. What you should know, however, is that Cantina Furlani will almost always take you on an adventure you've never been on. Matteo is the wild man winemaker up in the hills above the alpine city of Trento. This wine is certainly an expression of Mateo. He uses the "zero-zero" method of no intervention in the fields or the winery. In fact, the juice is never temperature controlled! Oh the joys of alpine life! This wine is a true expression of Mateo and the wild-fermented blend of grape juice that has lip puckering acidity. Drink this with some smoky foods or hard salty cheeses.
Tasting notes: Cranberry juice! Purple flowers like lavender, pine, alpine herbs.
