CASA BELFI, Albino Armani & Maurizio, San Polo di Piave
Certified Organic by Suolo e Salute, natural
The project started when when Albino Armani discovered a young oenologist from San Polo di Piave area named Maurizio Donadi. Their encounter gave birth to an inspiring cultivation and processing philosophy, based on the respect for nature and natural traditions.
Day by day, both experts in the fields and in the wine cellar measure up against the rhythm and needs of the vineyards and the grapes. The effort is carried on to the final stage, the bottling, always following the officially certified procedure for organic growing and organic winemaking.
The base for these procedures is still tradition: Colfondo is a perfect example. With its natural sur lie bottle re-fermentation and no filtration, this Prosecco is characterized by natural, country flavor and it is the same type of sparkling wine that our grandparents used to drink.
Casa Belfi Confondo Rosso: Made using a local venetian variety named Raboso “Fiery in Italian”, Colfondo method is used for this wine. The grapes are harvested manually, maceration for 30 days, carbonic fermentation in stainless steel tanks with native yeasts. Bottled with some residual sugars who finish the fermentation on the bottle. Neither filtered nor fined.
“Bright red tart fruits hit the palate immediately, with some notes of white pepper and a touch of sweet cranberry to finish”
