Alex Della Vecchia is a younger generation wine producer growing grapes and making wine in the shadow of the Dolomites in northern Italy. He has studied under greats of natural wine, and has forged ahead with his own project since 2010. This is a naturally sparkling wine produced from 20-year-old chardonnay vines, planted on heavily limestone inflected soils. Half the wine is direct-pressed, half is fermented on skins for 30 days. It is blended, rested for a year, and then juice from the same harvest is added to kick off fermentation again - it is bottled alive, and sparkles naturally! Delicious, wild edged and crisp with strong, stone fruit, herb and mineral characters. A very good fizz ensues.
