Stefano Bellotti began as an eighteen year old in 1977, reclaiming the family farm where there was less than 1 hectare of vineyard in existing use. In addition to grapes, the estate has a diversified production of fruits, vegetables and cereals, and keeps a variety of farm animals.
Natural wine made in an uncompromising fashion. Turbid deep red colour, wild hedgerow fruit, a touch of barnyard and smoky gravy-essence. Tannins are fine, acidity good - real power here.
