Additional Information

Our first red wine – Novecentonovantanove, which means 999 – is a bordolese style 2018 vintage made from 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Merlot. At first I didn't mean to blend Cabernet and Merlot, but it would have been a pity if I didn't do it. The juices of the two type of grapes fermented and were treated separately. Alcoholic fermentation occurred spontaneously in stainless steel tanks, then the wine was filled in separate concrete tanks, where it remained for 16 months until March 2020. A 5% of Cabernet Franc remained in old oak tonneux and has been added to the rest of the wine just before bottling. No sulphites has been added.
Our farm is located at the foot of the Euganean Hills, in the Italian province of Padova. We adopt organic agricultural practices that do not involve the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilization products and that avoids excessive exploitation of natural resources, within a model of sustainable development – economically, biologically, but also socially as part of corporate responsibility. We understand our farm as a complex biological organism: our farm include crops like wheat, barley, rapeseed, lucerne, hemp and beans. Part of the territory is dedicated to reforestation, in an area in which woods have been forced to give way to crops of industrial farming. The wet area contributes to the development of a complex “living” organism, with unusual presence of flora and fauna that enriches our eco-system. The vineyard is currently set up from 3.4 hectares of Garganega, 1.1 of Malvasia Istriana, 1.2 of Moscato (white grapes), 1.1 of Merlot, 1.1 of Cabernet Franc and 0.5 hectares of recovered local red vines: Turchetta, Recantina, Pataresca, Corbinona (red grapes). In order to promote biodiversity in our vineyards we seed green manure between the rows; the hedges planted aside of the vineyards with hazel trees, elders, blackthorns, sorb, wild roses and mayflowers provide safety, food and nesting areas for useful fauna.
