Monteforche / Lo Sfuso di Collina / 750mL
This 100% Cabernet Franc is biodynamic, effervescent, medium-bodied and dry. "Starts with a funky animal aroma that is evidence of completely natural winemaking and wild yeasts. After Lo Sfuso breathes for 30 minutes or more, the primary flavor profile is fresh blueberry, blackberry, and mulberry on the palate and floral nose. Finishes with fine tannins, high acidity, and earth. Pair with grilled octopus, sausages, kabobs, roasted meat, and grilled nightshade veggies."
Not long ago Alfonso Soranzo set aside the horn he had trained to play since childhood to pick up a plow and get to work in the vineyards. He manages a small property with his father in the Colli Euganei, southwest of Padova, crafting unique wines of great character using sustainable principles in the vineyard and little intervention in the cellar. The Colli Euganei are steep hills of volcanic origin that enjoy great exposure to the sun and cooling Adriatic breezes.
