Where and How?
This comes from the organic vineyards of the iconic La Stoppa winery in Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
The larger berries of Bonarda and Barbera, as well as their younger vines, are chosen for this easy-drinking wine. The grapes weree destemmed, and macerated for 20 days in stainless steel and concrete tanks, while fermentation took place naturally. The wine was then aged in stainless steel and concrete also. Bottled with some dissolved CO2, so expect a touch of lively spritz on opening, but this fades in the glass.
The Winemaker: La Stoppa
Listening to Elena Pantaleoni speak feels like soaking in sunlight—you want to absorb as much as physiologically possible, but the reality is that the feeling is fleeting. You can’t bottle warmth, but we can try to get it down on paper.
Elena operates beyond the realm of, quote, unquote, natural wine – it’s an expression that she doesn’t use since, well, wine to her has always been natural. Driven by the importance (and beauty) of locality, Elena’s approach to winemaking considers the land and what it represents, above all else. Wine is born in the vineyard, she tells us, and so the driving force behind La Stoppa has always been preservation.
