Mattia Donini wanted to make use of his family's vines about 15 minutes outside of Bologna so he got to work after attending oenology school and working in Burgundy, New Zealand, and Argentina. The property is 50 hectares of forest, pastures, lakes, and vegetable gardens, with only 3.5 hectares under vine. Everything is farmed organically with some biodynamic practices.

This 100% Barbera comes from soils that are mostly clay and limestone with some big rocks and chalk mixed in. Partial whole cluster fermentation and zero added sulfur gives this a playful suggestion of spritz without any actual bubbles. Otherwise this is a substantial wine with lots of juicy, ripe black plum, violets, black cherry, and a heaping of chewy tannins. Lively acids from the Barbera keep this formidable wine zippy and versatile. The mix of dark depths, vivid clarity, and feral energy is intensely satisfying. Jonathan Kemp
