Vintage: 2021
Region: Abruzzo, Itally

Grape varieties: Pecorino and Chardonnay

Il Mostro Ragana Bianco Frizzante is made from Pecorino and Chardonnay. Primary fermentation occurred naturally in a sealed stainless-steel tank and when the wine reached 15 g/L residual sugar the tank was cooled down to hold the ferment at 10 g/L. The wine was bottled and topped with more of the unfermented juice from the tank and the bottles were crown-sealed. Typical, fruity bouquets of lime, lemon, and ripe pear. The palate packs a pleasant punch of fruit, and the finish is full of lift. It brings you back in for another sip.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Il Mostro Ragana Bianco Frizzante

Il Mostro Ragana Bianco Frizzante is made from Pecorino and Chardonnay hand-harvested from two blocks that sit in an amphitheater at 750 to 850 feet in elevation. The majority of the grapes were cooled down at the winery and fermented at a cool 60ºF with the remaining grapes being whole-bunch pressed to a tank and chilled very cold to prevent fermentation and held in the tank. Primary fermentation occurred naturally in a sealed stainless-steel tank and when the wine reached 15 g/L residual sugar the tank was cooled down to hold the ferment at 10 g/L. The wine was bottled and topped with more of the unfermented juice from the tank and the bottles were crown-sealed. Typical, fruity bouquets of lime, lemon, and ripe pear. The palate packs a pleasant punch of fruit, and the finish is full of lift. It brings you back in for another sip.

About Il Mostro

Il Mostro, or The Monster, represents the newest venture behind the team at Poggio Anima. While Poggio Anima is all about delivering remarkable monovarietal wine values through single vineyard sites throughout Italy, Il Mostro pushes the boundaries a bit more. The first two wines were created at the tail end of the pandemic year better known as 2020. One of the longest practicing/certified organic farmers in Italy, and the source for Poggio Anima Samael was beginning to experiment with some more raw winemaking techniques and team Poggio Anima was listening.

What started as a conversation quickly moved to make the harvest of 2020 a reality, and Ragana and Longana were born as ancestral method sparkling wines of the white and pink colors respectively. Using certified organic fruit, natural fermentations, and zero additions other than a bit of sulfur has now paved the way for what hopes to be a long journey ahead of innovative and fun wines from throughout Italy. Stay tuned for what there is in store!
