Al di là del Fiume (beyond the river): consists of a small 2 hectare plot of vines nestled in Emilia Romagna, but is part of a farm dubbed ‘Danila Mongardi’ which is so much more than just a vineyard. Danila and Adriano Zago have managed to create their own biodynamic paradise, a farm that advocates the passion between people and the power of the earth – and as such have created a social farming model. Here inclusive agricultural production methods are embraced as the overall 27 hectares of land act as a multifunctional, educational, recreational and artistic hub. The vines are farmed biodynamically, spend time in Tuscan terracotta amphora and see absolutely no additions, and as such express the full ethos behind Danila and Adriano’s passion for biodynamics.
Albana, montuni and grechetto: gentile carbonic macerated for 5 days in stainless steel before pressing back to tank. Textural and rich and super lifted this is a joyful example of textural white, a change from the last vintages but one we adore at the moment.
