2022 Collecapretta 'Buscaia' Umbria IGT, Italy
Direct-press white wine obtained from two different strains of Malvasia; the traditional strain with a tight bunch and thick skin, and the “Candia” strain with a loose bunch, and a large and delicate grape. Both are harvested at the beginning of October and are vinified through spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks without temperature control for 10 days. Wine goes through first racking with the February moon, with a further racking at the end of March to prepare the wine for bottling in early April. No sulfur is added at any stage. “Buscaia” was the nickname of Annalisa’s Grandfather, who worked as a minatore (miner).
