It’s amazing that after all these years, so many eyes and attention paid to Italian wine, there’s still exciting new work in unique places. Georgea Marini’s farm is in an off-the-beaten-path province called Viterbo, at Lazio’s northern border with Tuscany and Umbria. Lake Bolsena, the largest volcanic crater-lake in Europe, is the tone setter for the region's terroir, providing all the ingredients for quality grape growing and winemaking: volcanic soils, varied exposures, elevation (1,411 feet) and moderating seasonal temperature changes.
Georgea Marini’s work revolves around regenerative farming, with focus on the native varieties found in this part of Lazio: Procanico (a local Trebbiano subtype) for white wines, Aleatico for reds. Grapes are manually pressed and fermented spontaneously with long macerations and in old barrels. The name Zero 8 is for the year that their label was established, and also the year her daughter Ginevra was born, 2008.
“Zero 8” Bianco is a gorgeous, fragrant and engaging wine, textural and savory. Quince, melon, tarragon, chamomile and citrus oil are aromas that come to mind when nosing this medium bodied amber wine. Fine and supple fruit tannins are lifted by brisk and refreshing acidity. Only 175 cases were made (insert crying emoji here). Bruno Sant'Anna
