A rich nose, with notes of citrus, almond, hazelnut... Palate: a rich juice, complex and intense. A wine destined to be paired with foods, with a long finish... The longer you forget it down in your cellar, the more it will give when you finally bring it out.
Stefano Bellotti was a living legend, Italy’s Pierre Overnoy if you will, settled since 1977 in the hills of Novi Ligure between Alexandrie and Gênes (Piedmont). Stefano was 18 years old when he inherited this family farm which comprised just one hectare of vines. And so, it was from almost nothing that Italy’s father of biodynamic viticulture got his start. He’d begin practicing biodynamics there in 1984, becoming the president of Renaissance Italy, and a member of Italy’s Triple A artisan wine organisation. Today, the estate stretches over 22 hectares, and employs 25 people. Of course wine is made here, but there’s also a vegetable garden, grain grown for the production fresh pasta, a bed and breakfast... The man never stopped, he even grew the very herbs that he used to develop his natural vine treatments. Stefano spent a lot of time working with young vignerons, passing on his knowledge, and sharing the secrets of his pioneering career. He passed away in the middle of the 2018 harvest, at the age of 59.
A nose of red fruits, plum jam, with vegetal notes... Palate: rich and structured, with huge body supported by lovely acidity, and an ultra long finish. A complete wine, with tannins enough to guarantee fine ageing potential.
A vinous rosé, with notes of raspberry and almond... On the palate: balanced, thirst quenching and tart. An Italian rosé like you rarely see. Rosa is always a highly sought after wine, and quickly consumed!
A simple wine? No, a little bomb of fruit, flowers, with notes of cherries and blackberries... Palate: fresh, tart and simply surprising – Bellotti the magician! If you could only take one wine with you, it should be this one! This bottle embodies all that wine is supposed to be: a vigneron who works with passion and care, an affordable price, drinkability, conviviality! A PUR JUS...
