NADIR CUNAEZ 5 JOURS PINOT NOIR ROSE
VALLE D'AOSTA ITALY
ZIPPY MOUNTAIN FRESH
ROSE / ORGANIC / 12.5%
Pinot Noir fermented on skins for 5 days in the awe worthy mountains of Aosta. A fleshed out rosato offering savoury herbs and trademark Pinot aromatics. A quenching drink.
From the producer: The vinification is traditional with a spontaneous fermentation and a maceration of 5 days on the skins. The wine then ages for 8 months in steel tanks. During the maturation, some decanting is carried out. The wine is bottled without clarification or filtration and rests in the bottle for at least 4 months. Our small winery is located in Gressan, on the outskirts of Aosta.
Founded in 2009, the winery rests its foundations on the family's agricultural business, managed first by my grandfather then by my father and precisely until 2009 aimed essentially at self-consumption.With a few thousand bottles produced, we apply an agriculture that respects the environment and the ecosystem as much as possible, so the rows do not know the use of herbicides or pesticides, but are treated exclusively with copper and sulfur, on average for four or five times per season. In the cellar, the philosophy is aligned with the choices made in the vineyard: the use of sulphites is reduced to a minimum, the winemaking does not require the use of additional chemical agents.
Fermentations are spontaneous or at most aided by a self-produced pied de cuve. We do not carry out clarifications or filtrations. Our goal is to return the Terrior Valdostano and the peculiarities of each of our single vineyards to the glass. We pay great attention to maintaining biodiversity, which is why many of our vineyards are over 50 years old and some are even centenarians. Behind our project there is a scrupulous work of research and field tests.Our wines want to be natural in substance.The vines we grow are: Petit rouge, Vien de nus, Fumin and Vuillermin the autochthonous ones; Pinot noir, Moscato, and Gewurztraminer the internationals. Our bottles are the fruit of unconditional love and passion for our land and our origins.
