Masieri Bianco 2020
BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
THE WINEMAKER: ANGIOLINO MAULE
Angiolino Maule is one of the founding figures of natural farming and wine-making in Italy. He has been setting an example in both practices since the late 1980’s and is now assisted by his two sons, Francesco and Alessandro. Their estate is located in the hills of Gambellara between Verona and Vicenza where they have 9 hectares of vines on south-facing volcanic soil slopes.
The health of the vineyard is maintained by mowing the grass between the vines, using only naturally produced plant compost (which they make on the property), controlling diseases through the use of herbal teas and other natural products, and bringing back the natural balance to the soil by means of sowing cereals or legumes (oats, field beans, etc.)
In the cellar the non-interventionist approach involves eliminating any artificial products such as selected yeasts, enzymes, etc. They use only natural yeasts, do not filter or fine the wine, and add only a very small amount of sulphur dioxide to the wines just before bottling. For some of the wines, sulphur dioxide has been eliminated completely. These wines are about as pure as they get. Not surprisingly, they taste just like delicious grape juice.
Masieri Bianco (a blend of Garganega and many other grapes) fermented in stainless steel with no skin contact and bottled with a minimal amount of sulphites.
