ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About 9 is Enough Vino Bianco Puglia
9 is Enough Vino Bianco Puglia is the inaugural release of the label based on the indigenous aromatic variety, Bombino. The fruit was hand-harvested, destemmed and fermented entirely whole-berry. After 2-3 days on skins, the grapes were pressed with the gross lees to open-top stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. Ambient yeast started and finished the fermentation and by the eighth day, the wine was dry. It was then racked to a closed stainless-steel tank for maturation and after six months the wine was bottled without fining or filtration and just a small addition of sulfur.
A light wine with a cool character. The aroma has notes of lemon, orange, and pear, typical of this varietal. In the mouth is marked by a marked acidity typical of the Bombino, saline and very strong with returns of citrus and pineapple.
About 9 is Enough
9 is Enough is the culmination of the relatively short time Valentina has learned the nuance of her vineyard and the unique micro-sites within it. The major difference between the ‘9 is Enough’ wines and ‘Calcarius’ is the former comes from grapes grown on ‘brown’ soils while the latter is from the ‘white’ soils of her vineyard. Furthermore from a winemaking/style perspective ‘9 is Enough’ showcases the beauty of the grapes at a very low alcohol level, or 9% is enough (sub-10% across the line). She has initially set out to make them non-vintage wines, leaving herself the creative flexibility to blend across multiple vintages for unique profiles or for further experimentation in the cellar that might require the wine to be labeled non-vintage.
