2019 MaterVI Vini, "Anonimo" Rosato, Vento Italy
Alberto Rigon is the farmer and winemaker behind the Matervi: Vini Underground wines. These natty wines is of small production and we are excited to get our hands on them and introduce the market to them.
Made from Groppello,Merlot and Pinot Vanderville. Groppello is a red grape variety that is typical to Verona and Trento but more often in the hills near the Lake Garda (region of Lombardy). However it is also found frequently in old vineyards in the Breganze DOC (Vicenza province of Veneto), where Alberto's vineyards are located, but not accepted by the appellation. Pinot Vanderville's history is a bit more obscure and may not necessarily be native to the region. Alberto was told by the local elders and farmers that Pinot Vanderville is a grape that was a variety brought from France to Italy by the legendary Trento DOC winemaker, Giulio Ferrari. After the following 3 years of research, Alberto will finally be visiting an ampelographer in Trentino for a complete DNA analysis in Spring 2021.
The Anonimo drinks like a light red and deserves a fresh chill on it. Open your noses to raspberries and roses. The first sip should expose ripe red fruit and cloves.
