The Rosso IGT Veneto “Novello” – without added sulphites is a PIWI wine, i.e. from vines resistant to fungal diseases. It is thus the result of constant human research and selection, over several decades, of crosses between varieties of vitis vinifera and American vine varieties (resistant to fungal diseases). The result for this wine is the minimum number of treatments carried out and the resulting environmental impact for its creation.
The maceration is 100% carbonic. Barely harvested, the grapes are poured into an airtight vat saturated with carbon dioxide for about a week. Inside the vat, the bunches at the bottom remain pressed by the weight of the grapes above.
The natural crushing of the grapes produces the formation of a must which, thanks to enzymes, begins to ferment, producing alcohol and additional carbon dioxide.
Malolactic fermentation then begins. Then the must is pressed and placed in a tank where, in a few days, the sugar will turn into alcohol.
Its color is ruby red with purple hues.
Notes of violet and red berries.
The Rosso IGT Veneto is soft, harmonious and fruity.
