- Other Information: Valdisole started when biologist Giuseppe Amato and electronic engineer Kyriaki Kalimeri happened to meet during a sommelier course. The two of them decided to take their mutual passion and fascination for winemaking to the next level when they bought their first vineyard in the middle of a national heritage site on the Roero hills of Italy's Piedmont region in 2015. Since then, Valdisole has been motivated by everything that's original and essential about wine while continually experimenting with new and old practices--even using non local winemaking techniques on local varietals. For this reason, Valdisole is known for making some of the most atypical and unexpected natural wines today, as seen in this 'Armonia.' Made with a white blend of 80% Arneis and 20% Moscato Bianco, organically grown and hand harvested. Indigenous to the Piedmont region, the Arneis grape is an overlooked varietal often used to distract birds and insects away from other more valuable vines. But here in the 'Armonia' it's celebrated and macerated on the skins for 15 days in steel. Then the Moscato Bianco, macerated for 50 days on skins in steel, is added to the Arneis wine. And together they age on their lees in steel tanks for 8 months.
