Costadilà Rosso is a smooth, dry and acidic table red with stone fruits on the palate. Cassis and dark plum flavours are enhanced perfectly by aromas of dark chocolate and tobacco. If you’re looking for something super flavourful and a little funky, this wine has you covered!
Costadilà was founded by Ernesto Cattel and a group of partners in 2006. Everything at Costadilà started as a labor of love. The goal was and is to valorize and rejuvenate Tarzo's rich agricultural traditions by reintroducing natural farming to the region. The scope goes well beyond wine, with a strong emphasis on polyculture: a farm where vines, fruits, vegetables, cereals and livestock coexist on the same plots of land. Completing the cycle, the produce grown from Costadilà land is then used and sold in local businesses. By creating this "model farm" for the region, Ernesto and his partners hoped to show a successful example to other farmers trapped in a monoculture economy.
Everything at Costadilà is farmed organically. As far as the wines, they are fermented with native yeasts until completely dry, then bottled for secondary fermentation. No sulfur is used at any point in the vinification.
