The Conti family rigorously applies organic standards to their farming, does a manual harvest and continues to apply the same philosophy to the work in the cellar. Indigenous yeasts are used in fermentation and little to no sulfur is applied during the elevage and at bottling. Several of their experimenal cuvees are bottled entirely without the use of sulfur.
Coming from a single hectare of hillside parcels in Boca, this is a rustic red made from a field blend of native red varieties of Piedmonte. All the grapes are organically farmed and the fermentation is with native yeasts. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, with only a small addition of sulfur.
This is a medium-bodied Alpine wine with notes of mountain berries, cherries and flowers, and moderate tannins.
