Stefano Bellotti embraced Biodynamics as far back as 1984, and he was a huge figure in the push for natural wine and better farming in Europe. Cascina degli Ulivi is still a lush, mixed farm with livestock, cereals, beehives, pastures, and of course grapevines, and the wines and the farm are safely in the hands of Stefano's daugher Ilaria. The agriturismo attached to the farm is a beautiful place that is not to miss if you're in the area, only an hour and a half from both Milan and Torino.

'Semplicemente' is certainly rustic. It's bottled without sulfur under crown cap, mostly to prevent the cork from popping out. There is abundant life in this wine, and used to be one of my favorite ways to get people into the deep end of the pool of natural wine. These days it's less provocative since natural wine has become more mainstream but it's no less enthralling and irreverent. A mix of Barbera and Dolcetto, it's ripe and juicy with some grippy tannins and some Brettanomyces that gives off plenty of feral funk. Chill it, chug it, love it. Jonathan Kemp
