2019 Terraquilla 'Il Nativo' Ancestrale

$49.00 $49.00

Place: Emilia-Romagna, ITA

Variety: Pignoletto/Trebbiano Romagnolo

Farming: Organic

Perched 500masl the vineyards of this humble estate are protected from the icy winter winds by the Castello di Guiglia and cooled by the gentle breeze of the Panaro River in summer. The vines stretch their roots into clay, sand and silt soils, a mix of Lambrusco Grasparossa, pignoletto, malbo gentile and, only recently discovered, an ancient clone of verdicchio unique to Guiglia.

The story of TerraQuilia began in 2004, but evolved rapidly with the swift success of their traditional sparklings refermented in bottle. These unadulterated, energetic wines garnered an overwhelmingly and surprisingly positive response from their customers, allowing the estate to pivot toward more substantial output.

This is a blend of two zippy-fresh white grapes, pignoletto and trebbiano romagnolo, fermented in stainless steel after a short, cold maceration then bottled still fermenting. It's disgorged after twenty months, producing a filigreed fizz that punches way above it's price. Comparable to good Burgundy or Loire Cremant.
