An austere Bonarda, structured, powerful, full-bodied, rightly tannic, lively and elegant. Unfiltered product with natural fermentation in the bottle, it is not separated from yeasts and preserves its peculiarities.
From the vintage 2017 our Bonarda is called “Nido della Tempesta” (storm’s nest), name that hides many senses. Directly it refers to an inaccessible place, infact it is obtained from grapes harvested in the steepest part of the vineyard. Opening the bottle an explosion of tastes, flavours and bubbles occurs, just like a small storm was closed inside. Metaphorically the storm represent our family, noisy, indomitable and tireless, nest has become our vineyard, our new home. Although not originally from Oltrepò, we like to think we have given a special touch to this Bonarda, returning to give importance to the vineyard and each single vine as tradition, but with a modern approach focused on maintaining a balanced ecosystem.
