Gutturnio Superiore DOC
Vivid ruby with marked legs and purple shades. On the nose, it has a generous bouquet of red plums and cherries with fresh spices hints such as liquorice and juniper. Still, dry with a confident body weight that is perfectly complemented by the all the flavours complexity. Red ripe fruits are swirling together with notes of vanilla, milk chocolate and cedar plus a touch of jam and raisins: all balanced by the rich acidity backbone which is confirming its strong potential for aging. Best served 10 to 15 min after opening.
Gutturnio Riserva DOC
Purple and dark red shades of high intensity rest on the glass forming marked arches. The bouquet is changeable and ranges from black cherry to plum with intense notes of spices such as pepper and licorice. On the palate we have a still wine, with a tenacious gradation and balanced by the high complexity of flavors. Here the overripe fruits, in fact, pleasantly alternate with secondary flavors such as vanilla and cedar with hints of jam and raisins filed by a surprising acidity: first signs for a more than assured aging potential in the bottle. We recommend decanting our Gutturnio Riserva a few minutes before tasting in order to fully appreciate all its potential
Monterosso Val D'Arda DOC
50% malvasia e moscato 45% trebbiano 5% sauvignon
Delicate yellow in color, it offers a complex and refined bouquet: from a first approach the green apple, the decan pear, notes of peach and acacia stand out, boosted by a surprising minerality expressed with notes of flint and silica. In the mouth it is firm and fresh: the fullness and flavors are balanced by the light body and the excellent acidity which always invites you to a second taste by cutting out on this wine roundness. Determined with a longevity to discover, our Monterosso resists over time and is also applies for aging. Ripe fruit will eventually develop hints of honey and apricot
Zero Sulfites - Organic
15% pinot noir
A sparkling wine created with Ortrugo and Pinot Noir grapes. The selected yeasts are introduced into the bottle together with the sweet must to start the second fermentation. No degorging: Bivium remains exactly halfway. The result is a naturally sparkling, naturally dry and naturally sulphite-free wine. Accompanied only by a light suspension of yeasts which, used instead of sulphites, prevent oxidation and balance the citrus part with toasted notes. An alternative and engaging response to an attentive and informed market, it surprises even the expert connoisseurs.
Colli Piacentini DOC
Spumante Metodo Classico
did you know? ..
During the Roman period the ''Gutturnium'' was a two liters silver jug which was shared among guests during banquets. It is the most important wine-related relic in our region and it was found on May the 23rd 1878 on the Po river bank near the small village of Croce Santo Spirito. It can be seen today at the Capitoline Museum in Rome
The Gutturnio was formerly appreciated as a noble still wine, among the first ten to receive the DOC appellation and it was produced by the richest lords on large ''tonneaux'' till the late 1800's. Thanks to the post-war booming economy, vinegrowers started to buy some land and produce their own wine using, however, cheaper cement tanks and bottling it much earlier. This caused the wine to often have residual sugar and naturally referment inside the bottle creating the sparkling style that got popular nowadays.
we are fond of the "noble" Gutturnio: still, dry with much more complexity and potential for aging
