Zanotto, Wild Col Fondo
A slightly sparkling natural white, unfiltered and refermented in bottles. During the first fermentation the must is left in contact with the skins for 3/4 days.
Thanks to the 'Col fondo' method the yeasts form a deposit on the bottom of the bottle (fondo literally means bottom in Italian) allowing the wine to maintain itself for longer and giving a complex flavour.
Place: Veneto, Italy
Colour: White Sparkling
Riccardo Zanotto is the man behind this label, he makes predominantly “Col Fondo”, sparkling wines (fermented in the bottle on lees). All grapes are farmed organically and/or biodynamically, and with the help of trusted growers and oenologists, Riccardo's interpretation of wine is translated directly into the glass. “Whoever drinks one of my bottles should find in it the stories of the past, the scent that made me fall in love with it and that peculiar personality that distinguishes me, because it’s witness of a particular territory.”
