Located 500 metres above sea level in Umbria, near the village of Colle Castelluccio, Dinamo is the latest project from Italy’s ‘Yoda of natural wine’ Danilo Marcucci. In 2018, Danilo teamed up with another Danilo – Danilo Nofrini and his son Simone, to embark on an experiment in sustainable viticulture, an attempt to recreate something of the natural, “more nutritional” wines of Marcucci’s childhood. “I first made wine with my grandfather 40 years ago,” says Danilo, “My snack was homemade bread dipped in wine. Back then it still had a high daily food value and was an important source of energy for everyone, especially those who had to face heavy days of farm work. I feel inspired to jump back to rediscover my origins thanks to the strength of all that I have built up now in natural wine”. To encapsulate this aim, the Nofrini family and Danilo chose the name Dinamo in honour of Italian physicist Antonio Pacinotti who, in 1860, invented a direct-current generator that he called the ‘Dynamo’. Using a simple mechanism it became an early form of renewable energy.
