2020 Terraprava 'Roverso' Pet Nat Veneto, Italy
A piquant blend of chardonnay and souvignier gris from the Veneto—the latter a crossing of bronner (itself a crossing) and cabernet sauvignon.
It is hand-harvested then only the best bunches are selected. It begins wild-fermenting in stainless steel before being bottling with fermentation miles left to walk. A melange of citrus topped with fresh herbs, the taste of joy on a humid night around the corner.
2019 Terraquilla 'Terrebianche' Col Fondo Emilia-Romagna, Italy
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 released undisgorged after fifteen months, that is, with the natural sediment from finishing fermentation in bottle. This is much more time than most col fondos are held back, producing a much more refined fizz than this category's reputation presumes.
2020 Bergianti 'No Autoclave' Lambrusco Rosso Emilia-Romagna, Italy
Terrevive was founded by Gianluca Bergianti is a polycultural oasis growing vegetables, cereals, fruits, herbs and grapes—all of which are indigenous varieties, farmed according to strict biodynamic principles from inception.
Lambruscos Salamino and Sorbara with a splash of native white grape pignoletto. Deep purple hue a harbinger for smell and taste—dark, wild berries treble with savoury, herbaceous bass. More pepperoni, per favore.
