Vino Rifermentato in Bottiglia

(Wine Refermented in the Bottle)

Grape Variety: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella

No one in Valpolicella has tried to make sparkling wine with Corvina in this confounding style. Secondary fermentation in the bottle with natural residual sugars topped with a crown top!

Located in the Val di Mezzane valley (Eastern Valpolicella) over a hill surrounded by woods, this gorgeous estate is managed with creativity and strong determination by Camilla Rossi Chauvenet and her coworkers. The name of the winery is from the Latin "Maximum Agium", maximum benefit.  In 2014 the vineyard became certified organic. Massimago is a young wine company run by young people - the average age is less than 35.

The grapes are picked and pressed immediately to obtain a light pink must.  Secondary fermentation in the bottle, Carbon dioxide is produced by the indigenous yeast.  Natural decayed lees remain in the wine and deposit at the bottom of the bottle.

Very pale salmon pink color.  At the nose, a delicate bouquet emerges: dew covered roses in a chilly morning, hints of grass, hay, toasted and stony aromas.  On the palate, the wine is fresh and lightly salted, with mineral flavors. Refreshing nutty finishing.

Rotate this unfiltered wine several times in the bottle to enhance the experience of the of this elegant natural wine.

The Timeless man on the label solidifies my passion for this Pet Nat.
