A wine that is fresh and vibrant, easy to drink and light in alcohol. Initially, the palate is full of citrus fruits, then as soon as it warms in the glass, delicate honey notes appear with a touch of apricot. The grapes are macerated on skins for 30 days giving it that intoxicating deep amber hue.
Farming vineyards in the shadows of the Dolomites, Alex della Vecchia is proving himself to be a prodigious talent. Having learned his craft alongside the late, great Ernesto Cattel of Costadilà, a highly respected, humble visionary who was singlehandedly responsible for preserving the traditions of the Prosecco of old, Alex began his own project, Ombretta Agricola in 2017. As well as producing from his own parcels, each year he sources organic grapes from friends elsewhere in Italy to make his ‘Grinton Blanc’ wines, easygoing macerations which are a tribute to the rustic vino da tavola of old.
