Furlani - Maddie Rosso (2020)

Furlani - Maddie Rosso (2020)

“Maddie” is named as a tribute to the Santa Maddalena DOC. 100% Schiava. Spontaneous fermentation without temperature control. Aged in stainless steel. No filtering or fining and minimal sulfur addition if needed.

After studying agronomy, not winemaking (he learned that from his father and grandfather) Matteo set his sights on working his land in the most natural of ways. Chemicals were never a part of what Matteo's predecessors used to tend the vines yet Matteo took an even more rigorous approach, incorporating biodynamic preparations and methodologies in the vineyards today.  

Wines are fermented either in cement tanks or small glass demijohns with no temperature control, no yeast, no sulfur.  To clarify the wines they are often racked into demijohns during the winter and placed outside in the snow allowing the wine to naturally settle.  The "Metodo Interrotto" or Interrupted Method cuvees essentially refer to an unfinished method Champagnoise, bottle re-fermentation.
