Cascina degli Ulivi Semplicemente Bianco 2017
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 29752
100% Cortese from a mix of Gavi and not-Gavi vines on red clay soils. The fruit is destemmed and spontaneously fermented in tank and barrel. The wine is aged 3 to 6 months in a gigantic 11,000-liter oak cask. There is no sulfur added at any point. This is Stefano’s entry-level white, the crown cap indicative of its intended glou-glou nature.
Cascina degli Ulivi produces wines from vineyards of around 16 hectares that have been worked using biodynamic methods since 1985. The estate has been in the Bellotti family since the 1930's and is now run by Stefano Bellotti. He is deeply commmited to organics and biodynamics, and raises not only vines but vegetables and livestock, which are sold wholesale and also served at their small restaurant attached to their agriturismo rooms for rent. As Stefano puts it, "We consider that the soil is a ‘companion organism’ for everything that lives. In working our vines, we foster the potential harmony of all those forces that contribute to the flow of vitality (of the vine)". The grapes are hand-harvested, crushed and fermented with wild yeasts and without sulfur.
