Finally in store - good Valpolicella!
Made in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy by Biodynamic stars Alessandra and Carlo Venturini, the 'Saseti' is their juiciest and most easy-drinking wine. Ruby red colour with purplish reflections, and scents of red fruits, cherries and juicy red plums with a hint of bitterness. On the palate, the fruit is vinous, with a suggestion of dew-covered grass. The minerality of the estate’s limestone soil is evident in this wine and the finish tasty and fresh.
Pair with risotto or pizza bianco!
Alessandra and Carlo Venturini are firm adherents to biodynamic principles. As such, they encourage the growth of biodiversity by planting herbs such as rosemary and lavender in the summer, whose fragrant blooms are attractive to bees; and sowing cereals in the winter, whose roots move and aerate the soil.
In addition, the Alessandra and Carlo have emphasized traditional and native grape varieties wherever possible to give originality and typical wines. "We want to restore value to native vines, old varieties forgotten because poor We try to preserve the knowledge and traditions of our grandparents, who gave value to each plant to recognize and know the qualities as a remedy for commons ills. Also, for the vineyards, there are some helping herbs which we use to prepare tea with flowers and dried leaves (nettle, dandelion, yarrow, sage, peppermint) and that during the summer are spayed on leaves and bunches. For us biodiversity is knowledge and tradition, it is expressed in love for small weeds and no domesticated plants, in the ways they were affectionately called, for the rituals and traditions that has been handed down from generation to generation”.
The Venturinis approach biodynamic agriculture with becoming modesty and curiosity, their daily work governed by the nature’s rhythms. They adopt measures in the vineyard to help preserve the fertility of the land and the developments of micro-organisms, which means that the roots of plants find useful materials in the soil to resist disease and parasitic attack. “Knowledge and respect for natural cycles help us to find the balance that give us a state of well-being and that will benefit our whole microcosm (soil-vine-wine-man)”.
