2019 Orsi San Vito 'Sui Lieviti' Pignoletto


Federico Orsi’s biodynamic farm is in a beautiful part of the Colli Bolognesi, just outside Bologna, Northern Italy. These hills were known locally for producing great wines for many years, before the local grapes and this humble appellation fell out of favour with drinkers, leading to many leaving their farms to seek jobs in the city. Since purchasing the land and converting it to biodynamics, Federico has been on a mission to put the region back on the map. This is true farming, vegetables grown here are served at local restaurants and the pigs that roam the vines are said to make the village's best mortadella. ‘Sui Lieviti’ translates to ‘On Yeasts’, a pet nat made using Pignoletto, a variety native to the Colli Bolognesi. It’s fermented in vat, with a little of the must from the same harvest added to the bottle for the second fermentation. It is aged on its lees and never disgorged. A simple, yet extremely refreshing wine with texture and citrus in spades.
