Winemaker Carlo Tabarrini spent his childhood, as many Italian children do, in his family's vineyards. His grandfather always made wine just for the family's consumption. As an adult, Carlo started winemaking with just a half hectare of land that had been largely abandoned. After fully revitalizing the land, Carlo started making natural wine in earnest. He is quoted as saying that his goal is, "to ferment grapes in peace without the use of too much technology".
This is a small production of skin-macerated orange wine made of Trebbiano Spoletino (not genetically related to other Trebbiano). Wine is organic and biodynamic. The vines are grownon a Pliocene-miocene aged lake bed with clay and limestone soils. Grapes are de-stemmed, spend 6 days in contact with skin. Wines are fermented in stainless and fiberglass with no temperature control and then aged 20% in neutral oak and 80% in stainless steel. The wine is unfined and unfiltered.
