Additional Information

An ancient and forgotten soul with a strong and young body. Smentià is dialect for the Italian word “forgotten.” This wine expresses my idea to use modern techniques in the cellar to produce a "grandfather wine", a forgotten type of wine that is by now an unusual and exciting tasting experience. This style of wine does not require any additional chemicals or modifications. At the very beginning, it was produced by vinifying the grapes of 6 small old vineyards—some of them as old as 110 years old—spread among the beautiful hills of the little town of Ponzano and Castelletto Merli (Piedmont). In 2006, we planted a new vineyard called “Naomi Campbell” off the side of the wine cellar. This young vineyard already had great potential in creating new wines for our collection. In 2009, we vinified the so-called Smentià for the first time in a steel tank, then aged it in wooden barrels for at least 18 months to allow the wine to reach the right maturation and natural cleaning. Smentià brings to light treasures of smells and tastes nowadays forgotten.
something
For the first time at the Raw Wine’ fairs, Tommaso, eccentric winemaker, produces personal wines since 2004, as a self-taught wine artesan. He has consciously chosen to enhance the history of his vineyards, restoring vineyards that had long since been forgotten by time. He uses the most ecological and natural methods to grow vineyards and to produce wine in the cellar. His wines are alive and they change every year.. vini vivi e dimenticati (alive and forgotten wines) is his slogan, indeed. Every bottle contains the essence of that year, the vineyard’s expressivity, and his signature—the personal idea of the winemaker. These are wines with a story to tell and emotions to make you feel.
