Il Vei, Malvasia
Delicately aromatic, but still very refreshing, this has a good amount of spritz but is still not aggressively sparkling. Thirst quenching.
Place: Emilia Romagna, Italy
Colour: Sparkling Orange
Savino, Anna and Riccardo Braghieri make wine in the rolling hills of Val Luretta. Savino and Anna bought one hectare of vines around 30 years ago and now farm 8 hectares, they have always worked organically. The Braghieri family make wines that we love to drink. And obviously the locals feel the same as most of their production is sold to private customers and local trattorias in demijohns. When bottled, everything is bottled with a little sugar left so that most have a slight spritz on opening. The gas not only protects the wine but adds to their drinkability and freshness.
The reds are wines for the table and bring strong memories of travelling in the area. The whites and pink are thirst quenching and wonderful.
