Vino da Tavola, ‘Catavela’
25% Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, 25% Ortugo, 24% Marsanne, 24% Trebbiano, 1% Santa Maria, 1% Sauvignon Blanc
From vines averaging 12 years old and planted to stony chalk soils at the very top of the hill (650m) called Campo Rotonde. The grapes are hand-harvested in early September, undergo intensive vineyard sorting, de-stemming and half of the harvest spends six days on the skins while the other half is directly pressed. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in stainless steel and lasts 15 days without temperature control. The wine spends approximately eight months on lees without stirring.
"Azienda Agricola DENAVOLO was created in 2005 and produces local and traditional wines in the province of Piacenza, on the hills that divide the Trebbia Valley from the Nure Valley, two tributary rivers of the Po.
We are a small family estate, located in the great plain of the Po with a continental climate, hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
The oldest vines were planted in 1975, on a farm that we manage completely. The plots are located between 350 and 400 meters of altitude on clay soil, fresh and very limestone." -
