Place: Monferrato — Piedmont, Ita
Sette is a splendid vineyard in Nizza, Monferrato, with five and a half hectares of vines aged between 20 and 75 years old. Purchased in 2017 by friends Gianluca Colombo and Gino Della Porta, they set about converting the property to organic farming immediately. Whilst a great array of fruit trees can be found throughout the vineyard, commitment has been made to plant more than 40 old tree varieties of local fruit and tall trees per year.
The ‘Sette’ wines are produced with the older vine material whilst the younger vine fruit goes into the ‘Mille Millilitr’ 1L bottles. This has to be one of the most exciting addresses in Monferrato right now, grandstanding the region through the frame of freshness, energy and vitality. Uplifting wines!
Comprised of the young vine material from the Sette Vineyard, these grapes spend their adolescence partying with us before they are grown up enough to be bottled Barbera d'Asti. Juicy, fresh, bright and plush, this perfect pasta wine is made even better by being in a litre bottle. Chill me down slightly and enjoy with ox tail ragu.
