Fatto Coi Piedi, which means “made with feet” features the stunning Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, a grape variety found only near Piacenza and a few other areas close by. It is a thick skinned and very aromatic grape, which turns out to be perfect for a macerated wine.
Age of Vines: 40 years
Varieties: 40% Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, 40% Ortugo, 20% Unknown local varieties
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand de-stemmed and macerate on the skins for 20 days in open topped fiberglass vats that rest outside, with frequent punchdowns. The wine is racked once before being bottled manually, unfined and unfiltered with zero sulphur added.
