Vintage: 2021
Region: Abruzzo, Itally
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: 100% Montepulciano

Il Mostro Longana Rosato Frizzante is made from Montepulciano and was hand-harvested in mid-September. 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 tank and chilled very cold to prevent fermentation and held in 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 in order to hold the ferment at 10 g/L. Dense and juicy at first but brightens up as the firm line of acid rushes through the middle of the wine. Light red fruit flavors and floral notes carry through the persistent finish, which features an underbrush nuance.

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 from throughout Italy, Il Mostro really 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 prior to harvest 2020 to 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!
