  • Other Information:It knows how to say no, pursuing its own path, to then share its own real, unique essence. Egotista is a made-up word that would intensify the italian word Egoista (=selfish) in its more positive meaning: confidence in your own skills mixed with an increased focus on your own ideas and visions. Producing this wine meant accepting that you have to be able to say no, pursue your own path, and share your own real essence. This combination gives you a precise aim, that in this case is a wine with a unique and unexpected taste. These white grapes are harvested when they reach full maturation. After a light pressing of grapes kept in entire bunches, the must is left spontaneously fermenting in steel vats. After fermentation, it ages in steel containers until August, when we bottle the wine without filtering it. Egotista ages in bottles for at least 6 months before consumption.

About Asotom

Piedmont, Italy

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.
