2021 Annesanti 'Raspato' Pét Nat Bianco
100% Moscato. A truly natural wine- this is organically and biodynamically farmed, hand harvested, with no fining, no filtration and no sulfur additions. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, of course. Vines are grown on clay soils, 350m above sea level. As a Pétillant Naturel wine, it is bottled before the primary fermentation is complete, so the fermentation process continues in the bottle to produce a natural spritz. "Raspo" is stem in Italian, a reference to the whole cluster fermentations Francesco employs to create this singular bubbly.
100% Moscato. Looks and smells a bit like pineapple juice and pours with an exuberant foam. Floral and slightly funky on the nose, with notes of the aforementioned pineapple, green apple, grapefruit and zingy acidity. So much going on in this wine- but its still easy to chug!
