Brine d’Aprile Emilia Rosso Ca di Noci, biodynamic wine, zero added sulphur, Malbo Gentile and other autoctonous varieties. A fascinating wine made from gnarly old vines of Malbo in the Emilian hills above Reggio-Emilia. All work is done following natural and Biodynamic principles, no sulphur is added to the wine. This wine can be quite full and rich in a hot vintage but the 18 was wetter and the wine is lighter but in no way lacking anything. The abv of 11% makes it ideal red for lunchtime, the fruits are lively and clean, and the palate has a delicious crunch to it. This is one of classic Italian reds which when paired with any home made dishes from Italy, absolutely shines.

Inserted into stoney and silty hillsides along the valley of the Crostolo stream, the vines find themselves planted amongst walnut trees. The plot was chosen by Vittorio, father of brothers Alberto and Giovanni, during the 1970s. The brothers began making wine on the family estate in 1993 and converted to Biodynamic practices, focusing on autochthonous grape varieties – Spergola, Malbo Gentile, Sgavetta and Montericco.

Only indigenous yeasts are used and grapes are meticulously hand-picked followed by a careful pressing in the coolest hours of the morning. Working without the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides in their vineyards, the philosophy of the winery is to reduce every impact of their activity on the ecosystem.

A riff on traditional grapes but taken in their own way, the wines cut through the fat of the classic Emilian cuisine, like Parma ham, Ragu and mountains of lovely Pasta. They are wines for the table, with the health of the drinker and the longevity of our ecosystem laid out as a centrepiece.
