Made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Barbera, and Negretto
A smooth and approachable natural red, this is a medium-bodied, jammy affair with notes of berries and earthiness. One to keep the conversation flowing post-dinner under the dim warm lights (please, never with white incandescent light).
About the Producer
Orsi Vigneto San Vito in Bologna, Italy is run by Federico Orsi - a Bologna-born, Brazil-bred former MBA-minted consultant who jokingly brought up the idea of buying a distressed vineyard with his family - who seriously responded in the affirmative. Upon purchase, Federico hit the books and taught himself how to cultivate grapes and make wine. Through his studies, he was drawn to the unique approach of biodynamic farming, sought mentors in his vicinity, and after a couple of years managed to create a winery that adheres to the highest standards of natural winemaking.
